Federal Way Police say 16-year-old Luis F. Cosgaya-Alvarez of Kent was taken into custody in South Seattle.
The shooting happened just 8 p.m. as practice was ending for the Federal Way Hawks, a junior league football team. A crowd of parents and players were leaving at the time.
That’s when police say a black SUV pulled up and someone shot 26-year-old Ormero Garcia Mendez in the head.
Witnesses say they had seen the SUV before circling the lot as if the driver was in search of someone.
According to friends, the Mendez was there to pick up another friend’s child. He had come to the field every night.
Police who actively pursued the case say that they don’t believe the shooting was gang related.
Alvarez remains in custody at the county detention center.
