Police said a man shot and killed by officers in Federal Way first shot and killed his girlfriend and then fatally shot three men at an apartment complex.
Investigators said they believe the series of slayings began with a domestic violence incident in which the man first fatally shot his girlfriend in the head at their shared apartment in the complex. He then left their apartment armed with a shotgun.
Once outside the apartment he encountered two men. Police said he shot both of them.
The resident of another apartment in the building, a 62-year-old man, walked out of his apartment, saw what was happening, told another neighbor to call 911, and went back inside.
Police said the suspect fired a shotgun to breach the apartment door and then shot the man, killing him.
