Washington State Patrol have arrested a man suspected of a drive by shooting on State Route 167 in Kent.

Troopers arrested 23-year-old Josh Allen at 10 a.m. Thursday in connection to the May 18 shooting. 

According to Washington State Patrol (WSP), at around 2 a.m. that morning, troopers responded to reports of a shooting on northbound State Route 167 just south of I-405. When they arrived, they found a vehicle with at least four bullet holes on the right shoulder of the road. 

The driver inside the vehicle, who did not get hit, described the car that shot at him as a dark blue Honda Accord. The car was lowered with a wide body kit, had black wheels and heavily tinted windows. The people in the car were described as two men, possibly in their early 20s. 

The victim says the passenger of the Honda unrolled his window and opened fire, striking the car, shattering a window and disabling it. 

Anyone with more information on the shooting is urged to contact Detective Medeiros at
