Police search for suspect after man shot and killed in Burlington

BURLINGTON, Wash. -- Authorities are searching for a suspect after a man was shot and killed Friday in Burlington.

Burlington Police say Christian Flores, 19, of Sedro-Woolley is being sought in connection with the shooting, which happened at 11:34 a.m. in the 100 block of South Burlington Boulevard.

Police found the shooting victim, a 23-year-old  Skagit County man, in a vehicle. He died at the scene, according to a release.

Officials released two photos of the suspect, and say he's believed to be armed and dangerous. They believe he was aided in fleeing the area after the shooting.

"The sooner he is in custody, I think the safer all of us will feel especially after a brazen act like this," said Burgling Police Sgt. Mike Lumpkin.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call police at 360-428-3211. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can submit a tip to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS or through the P3 Tips App on your cell phone.

Burlington High School and West View Elementary School were placed on lockdown after the shooting as a precaution. Those lockdowns have since been lifted.
