Victim of fatal shooting in White Center identified by Medical Examiner’s Office


The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the victim of Sunday’s fatal White Center shooting as James C. Little Jr., 30.

Little was shot in the head – by a suspect still at large – and died just across the street from the Taradise Cafe/Bar in the 9800 block of 16th Ave SW early Sunday. Police say that around 1:30 a.m., a fight broke out between two groups of women inside the bar, then escalated and ended up outside, with numerous people either watching or participating in the disturbance.

After the altercation was over, Little walked across the street with a woman who had been in the altercation. He stood with a group of people for moments before a man in the group pulled a gun and shot him in the head, killing him. The suspect then ran southbound, got into a vehicle and drove off.

Detectives believe the suspect vehicle is a white, circa 1999-2001 BMW station wagon. The suspect is described as a black male, and was last seen wearing a dark colored hoodie.

Anyone with information or who may have taken cell phone video before, during or after the shooting is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.

Additionally anyone who may have been driving in the area or picked someone up from the area is asked to call.

You may also be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 and remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS(8477).
