Auburn Police need help in tracking down shooter | SEE VIDEO

The Auburn Police Department is asking for the public to help it identify the suspect of an early Friday morning shooting at a Jack In The Box drive-through restaurant.

The customer fired one round through the drive-through window at the eatery, 315 15th St. NE, Auburn, around 2:54 a.m., according to Auburn Police.

The clerk told the customer he could not hear his order over the music, and when he reached the window, the customer fired one round through the window.

The round struck the far wall, and the customer drove away at a high rate of speed.

There were no injuries, and Auburn Police continue to investigate.

Police say the vehicle appears to be a dark colored Ford Explorer with front end damage.

A witness described the suspect as a large stature black male, mid to late 20’s, with a gap between his two front teeth.

Information can be called in (anonymously or not) to the Auburn Police Department hotline at 253-288-7403.
