Officers have located the person of interest, believed to be involved with an alleged homicide that occurred in the early morning of May 31 in Kirkland.

The subject was located later that morning as he exited a Redmond residence at about 8 a.m.

Police believe the victim knew the person of interest.

The subject is in police custody and detectives believe there are no outstanding suspects in this homicide.

Kirkland police responded early May 31 to a report of a home disturbance in the 12900 block of 131st Avenue Northeast, according to police.

When officers arrived shortly after 2 a.m. they found a deceased male with what detectives believe may be stab wounds.

Officers located another victim, a female adult who was stabbed, with critical injuries. She was transported for care and is expected to survive.

Detectives are interviewing others who were inside the home at the time of the incident.

A K-9 track was conducted following law enforcement’s arrival in an attempt to locate the suspect, as officers believed he fled the scene before police arrived.

Detectives will be on the scene of the home throughout May 31 and June 1 processing the scene as the investigation continues.
