WSP Seeks Witnesses in Road Rage



SEATAC, Wash. – The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is seeking witnesses of a road rage shooting incident and the subsequent collision at around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday on northbound Interstate 5 near 216th Street on March 15, 2023.

The incident began with a white vehicle driving erratically and cutting in front of other vehicles. The driver of a black passenger car was driving beside the white vehicle. Shortly after sustained a gunshot wound to the face, resulting in the driver colliding with the barrier on the right shoulder and continuing northbound before coming to a stop in the right lane.
The driver of the white vehicle continued northbound, fleeing the scene.
WSP troopers arrived on the scene and provided life-saving efforts to the injured driver before they were transported to Harborview Medical Center.
WSP detectives request assistance in locating the suspect and vehicle. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Tim Hanson at

UPDATE: Today, April 20, 2023, Francisco Castro-Guzman, 20 years old from Auburn, was booked into the King County Jail for Assault 1st Degree with a firearm enhancement. A Crime Stoppers tip steered the investigation toward the suspect, and probable cause was developed to submit charges to the King County Prosecutor’s Office. Detectives reached out to local agencies in an attempt to locate Castro-Guzman. The King County Sheriff’s Department contacted them earlier this week, advising that the suspect was at Harborview Medical Center. They were investigating a shooting in where Castro Guzman was the victim. WSP troopers were assigned to Castro-Guzman until his release from the hospital, after which he was jailed. WSP would like to thank Crime Stoppers and the tipster that led to the arrest and charges in this case.
