Bellevue police have arrested two suspects in connection with Sunday’s Crossroads Park shooting.

Witnesses and the victims’ descriptions are what led police to the male suspects, age 22 and 19, on June 26. Both are Bellevue residents.

Police learned of the shooting after two victims with serious gunshot wounds to the leg and foot went to Overlake Hospital for treatment just before midnight on June 22.

The 18 and 22-year-old male victims told investigators they were sitting in their car at the park when another car drove up, and the suspects shouted something out the window. That verbal altercation escalated into a physical fight and one of the suspects fired a gun.

A third party, at the park with the victim’s at the time, was unharmed, said Meeghan Black, spokesperson for the Bellevue Police Department.

The 22-year-old suspect was arrested on assault charges, and the 19-year-old was arrested for rendering criminal assistance for driving the suspect from the scene. Charges have been referred to the King County Prosecutor’s office.
