Suspect arrested in EWU recruit's murder

KENT, Wash. (AP) — Police say a suspect in a fatal Halloween shooting in Kent has an extensive criminal history.

The 20-year-old Auburn man was caught Tuesday night after detectives got a tip, followed a car and chased down a passenger who tried to run away. A police dog tracked him to a convenience store where he was arrested.

The man is jailed for investigation of murder in the killing 18-year-old Devin Topps on Oct. 31 outside a house party.

Topps graduated from Kentridge High School and had signed a letter of intent to play football for Eastern Washington University
