Some Seattle Shooting Facts Getting Lost In The Coverage
You won’t find any of the details below in the latest New York Times report on the shooting in Seattle.
When Mian Haq of Richland founded the center in 1981, it was made up of his family and one other woman.
Naveed Haq would have been approximately five-years old, as he’s listed on the alumni page as having graduated from Richland High School in 1994. Ironically enough, the school’s teams are called the Richland Bombers.
Said to require medication for a bi-polar disorder, he’s also alleged to have exposed himself in a shopping mall. Naveed Haq also had a permit to carry a concealed weapon and kept a handgun in a safe deposit box.
Local media reported Haq was on medication for a bipolar disorder and had a misdemeanor lewd conduct charge pending. He allegedly exposed himself at a shopping mall.
For now, his where abouts for the past two weeks are unknown. It’s been reported that he left his apartment, purportedly for Pakistan two weeks ago. That would coincide with the beginning of the current hostilities in the Middle East.
Naveed Haq lived in an apartment building at 2924 Nassau St. in Everett until about two weeks ago, when he abruptly left, said tenant Chris Richey. The landlady told Richey that Haq was heading to Pakistan. Richie often talked with Haq about guns and politics, though little stuck out. Richey said Haq didn’t like President Bush.
Haq told Richey he owned a .45-caliber handgun, which he kept locked up in safety deposit box.
The law-enforcement source said Haq had a license to carry a concealed weapon.
