An arrest has been made in the fatal shooting of Seattle software developer Justin Ferrari, a Zillow employee who was struck by a stray bullet in Seattle’s Central District on May 24th.
Homicide detectives arrested a 20-year-old man at a Federal Way home today who they suspect opened fire on Cherry Street near Martin Luther King Jr. Way, resulting in a bullet striking Ferrari as he drove past with his family.
“Detectives worked hard. Real hard. Pretty much non-stop,” said homicide detective Bob Vallor in a comment on the Seattle Police Department’s blog. The suspect, whose name was not released, has been booked in the King County Jail on murder charges.
Homicide and gang detectives served additional warrants today in the case. They made the arrest after combing through surveillance footage from the crime scene.
Ferrari, a father of two young children, previously worked at Cisco Systems, Pure Networks and ViAir.
