Thurston detectives arrest homicide suspect in connection with shooting outside trailer

Excerpt from The Olympian via MSN:

Deputies arrested a 37-year-old man early Thursday morning in connection with a fatal shooting March 5 near Yelm.

Thurston County Sheriff’s detectives arrested the man while executing a search warrant at a residence in Yelm, according to a news release. The county jail log shows he was booked on suspicion of second-degree murder.

The arrest follows a three-week investigation into the death of Trever Miller, a 31-year-old man who was shot multiple times the evening of March 5. Deputies found Miller after being dispatched to a trailer on the 11600 block of Morris Road Southeast, south of Prairie Elementary School.


Bail set for Thurston County man accused of shooting at driver

Excerpt from The Chronicle:

A 22-year-old Tumwater man accused of shooting at a driver Saturday [March 23] is being held in Thurston County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Christian Joseph Olivencia attended his preliminary appearance in Thurston County Superior Court on Monday.

Deputies arrested Olivencia Saturday evening on suspicion of first-degree attempted murder following an apparent “road rage” incident on Yelm Highway Southeast, Thurston County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Brooks previously told The Olympian. Deputies believe Olivencia retrieved a gun to confront another driver but fired at the wrong car, Brooks said.

The Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has accused Olivencia of first-degree assault while armed with a firearm and drive-by shooting instead of attempted murder, according to court records.
