Charges referred against five teenage robbery suspects

Detectives sent criminal charges to the King County Prosecutor’s Office in connection with a robbery on April 26th that allegedly involved five teenagers, three 15-year-olds, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, robbing the 7-11 in the 100 block Bellevue Way SE at gunpoint. The detectives say three suspects entered the store and one fired a shot inside the store and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Two other suspects remained in the vehicle. 

The five are accused of leaving Bellevue and encountering Bothell police, where they allegedly fired at officers and were finally captured in Shoreline. Officers recovered two handguns and other evidence at the scene.

The charges Bellevue detectives sent to the prosecutor include Robbery in the first degree, Aiming or discharging firearms and Malicious Mischief in the third degree.

Bellevue detectives are working with other police departments investigating similar robberies that night in their cities. Luckily, no one was seriously injured.

The five juveniles were booked into the King County Juvenile Detention Center and were later released.
