Family of father of 6 shot to death in Renton wants killer caught

A family is still looking for answers nearly a month after a 30-year-old father of six was shot to death in Renton.

The sister of Jevon Jimerson said he took his cousins out boating before he was shot to death. The boat trip was a gift to them, because they were either going to college for the first time or returning to college.

Surveillance video showed him pull up with the boat on a trailer to Lakeside Boat Service and Storage at 919 Houser Way N in Renton around 9 p.m., on July 27, get out and walk over to unlock the gate. A shooting suspect approaches and fires at least 16 shots at Jimerson, killing him.
