According to KIRO 7’s Joanna Small, one suspect is Hector Salvador Garcia-Ceja Jr., 24, who is wanted for murder in Yakima.
According to the Yakima Herald, arrest warrants were issued for three men, including Garcia-Ceja Jr., who were charged with the murder of a 44-year-old Granger man. The homicide is possibly related to a drug deal gone bad. The three men are from the Everett and Marysville area. The Herald further reports that they are “Sureño gang members with ties to Yakima and Everett.”
