Yakima Police search for shooting suspect

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima Police have identified a suspect wanted in connection with a homicide over the weekend.

They are searching for 29-year-old Alexander Quintana. He is a known gang member. Quintana has a scar on his right cheek and the numbers "666" tattooed on the front of his neck.

Police suspect Quintana fatally shot a man Saturday night on the 1100 block of Baker Street in Yakima. They say the victim, William Kreder, apparently died in a drug deal gone bad. He was shot in the head.

This was Yakima County's 23rd homicide this year.

Police say they have probable cause to arrest Quintana for homicide. He also has an escape warrant for his arrest from Washington State Department of Corrections. He should be considered armed and dangerous.

If you know where Quintana is, call Yakima Police at 575-6200.
