4-year-old dies of gunshot in Washington;felon flees

Police are hunting for convicted felon Trevor Braymiller after the shooting death of a 4-year-old boy in Sedro-Wooley, Wash.



SEDRO-WOOLEY, Wash. — A convicted felon is on the run in wooded rural Washington after a 4-year-old boy died Sunday of a gunshot at his home.

The man, 25-year-old Trevor Braymiller, is considered armed and dangerous, Sedro-Woolley police Chief Doug Wood said.

"He's been in the area for quite some time," Wood said. "He's a convicted felon with a prior conviction for selling drugs," Wood said.

Initial reports Sunday morning said the boy had shot himself with a gun, Wood said, but after a medical examiner looked at the boy, it was determined that was not the case. Wood said investigators are treating the case as a homicide.

Braymiller is believed to be moving on foot, with officers from several law enforcement agencies chasing him. Wood described Braymiller as having "scruffy" facial hair and wearing a red or orange shirt.

Sedro-Woolley is a town of about 10,000 people 70 miles north of Seattle in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.

On Sunday afternoon, officers were focusing the search on the Big Lake area, just south of the town, Wood said.

Investigators believe Braymiller was not the boy's father, but rather a father figure.

The boy's mother was questioned and is now with her family. Another boy was also at the home at the time of the shooting, Wood said.

The home is well-known to officers in the area. In 2011, police conducted a drug raid there, the Skagit Valley Herald reported.

The boy was transported to Skagit Valley Hospital and was pronounced dead.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
