Where'd They Get Their Guns?
An Analysis of the Firearms Used in High-Profile Shootings, 1963 to 2001
Date: November 3, 1999
Location: Northlake Shipyard, Seattle, Washington
Alleged Shooter: Kevin Cruz
People Killed: Two
People Injured: Two
Firearm(s): Glock 9mm pistol, .32 pistol, and a .22 rifle
Cruz, wearing camouflage clothing and sunglasses, allegedly walked into a boat repair company in Seattle's Northlake Shipyard and shot four employees with a Glock 9mm pistol, killing two of them. After a two-month manhunt, police captured Cruz after receiving a tip from David Anderson, whom Cruz had stayed with earlier that year.
Cruz stole the Glock, as well as the .32 pistol and the .22 rifle, from David Anderson who owned them legally. Anderson had reported the theft to police, but the investigation stalled due to a computer glitch.
