Seattle Police say they have arrested the killer of a dad who was driving through Seattle's Central District in May and hit by a stray bullet.

"Just because we've made an arrest doesn't mean this is over. There's still a lot of investigative work that needs to be done, but we do believe we have our man," said Sgt. Sean Whitcomb.

He said U.S. Marshals took the 20-year-old man into custody at his home in Federal Way on Thursday.

Ferrari, 43, was driving his van on Martin Luther King Jr. Way and E. Cherry Street on May 24 just as a man on foot began firing a gun at people he was arguing with. Ferrari had just picked his parents up from the airport and also had his two children in the van.

No one else was hurt. Witnesses said they saw Ferrari's father cradling his son's head shortly after hearing the gunshot.

Ferrari's two children, ages 4 and 7, ran to the safety of her restaurant after the shooting. They stayed for about 45 minutes and asked for something to eat.
