LONG BEACH - The Washington State Patrol announced Monday morning that a person of interest has been detained in the shooting of Trooper Scott Johnson. Investigators developed information about an individual overnight.

The person was located in the early morning hours of Monday, Feb. 15, and detained. Investigators are now seeking search warrants for locations that may be relevant to the case.

"We are not focused solely on this person," said WSP Chief John R. Batiste. "While we believe this person is certainly worth a deeper look, we are continuing the broader investigation. We have talked to many people so far, and we will continue to contact individuals who might have information about Saturday's shooting."

WSP is still seeking tips from the public. In Washington, people can call 1-800-283-7808. Outside Washington caller can provide tips at 1-360-405-6650.
