Bellevue police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a man that is accused of shooting a family member in Bellevue earlier this month.
On Dec. 2, 32-year-old Francisco Chavez Bedolla allegedly shot his cousin during an argument while the two were at a residence in Bellevue. Bedolla was later arrested and booked into jail for first degree assault.
Police believe that Bedolla is taking steps to avoid prosecution, and a $750,000 arrest warrant has since been issued for his arrest. If locals have any information about the whereabouts of Bedolla, police urge them to contact CrimeStoppers of Puget Sound by calling 1-800-222-TIPS. Individuals with information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
