According to hospital staff, Abercrombie said he took mushrooms and the last thing he remembered was making music with friends.

Investigators spoke with a witness, who claimed Abercrombie called her earlier that morning and said he was “f***** up off shrooms.” He told the witness that someone tried to rob him and he ended up killing that person, police said.

After the alleged revelation, the witness and another person headed over to Abercrombie’s apartment and saw blood all over the residence, police said. They found Abercrombie in a bedroom, but he pointed a gun at the pair as soon when he saw them and they left the apartment, according to police.

Police later spotted Abercrombie walking outside the apartment, but when they tried to stop him, he fled into the back seat of the witness’ car, KOMO reported. The witness told police she would take him to UMC, police said.
