The Latest: Vigils held for Washington shooting victims

SEATTLE (AP) — The Latest on the Washington state shooting (all times local):

12:10 p.m.

A second vigil is planned for Sunday evening in a small waterfront community north of Seattle after three people were shot to death at a house party.

Hundreds of young people lit candles and exchanged at Kamiak High School in Mukilteo on Saturday night in another event to mourn the deaths.

In addition to the three people slain, another was wounded in the early Saturday shooting.

State troopers say they pulled over and arrested the fleeing 19-year-old suspect on an interstate more than 100 miles away.

The grandmother of one of the witnesses said the gunman arrived with a rifle at the party of about 15 to 20 friends from Kamiak High School — mostly recent graduates aged 18 to 20.

9:15 a.m.

Authorities in Washington state on Sunday say a man is in custody and they're not actively looking for other suspects following a gunman's attack on a gathering of young adults that left three dead and another wounded.

Police say the shooting took place at a home in the Seattle suburb of Mukilteo early Saturday. State troopers say they later pulled over and arrested the fleeing 19-year-old suspect on an interstate more than 100 miles away.

Police did not immediately release his name but Allen Christopher Ivanov was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Saturday afternoon for investigation of three counts of murder.

Mukilteo Police Department Officer Myron Travis says there's no reason to believe there are other suspects.

Authorities have not released the names of those who were shot.
