A suspect in a “brutal” murder of a couple in Washington was nabbed after a struggle at a gas station, concluding his few days as a suspect on the lam, police said.
On Aug. 22, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office in Washington announced it apprehended Shaun Rose.
He was arrested at a Tacoma, Washington, gas station around 8 p.m., according to the sheriff’s office.
Rose was spotted earlier in the day driving a Buick in Mason County, Washington, according to authorities. Police chased him before losing him due to his erratic and dangerous driving.
Investigators said Rose ditched the Buick and stole another car, which he drove to Tacoma. He abandoned that vehicle and then went to the gas station when he was nabbed by police after a struggle.
He is being taken to Kitsap County to face murder charges.
Rose was identified as the suspect of a double murder in Olalla, Washington, on Aug. 19. A woman went to a home to check on her parents and saw blood inside. She then called 911.
Deputies went to the home and found two adults dead, according to officials. They died from “homicidal violence,” though police did not offer further details.
The victims were identified as Steven Shulz, 51, and Mina Shulz, 51.
It’s unclear if Rose knew the victims, and police did not release a possible motive in the case.
