Redmond Police responded to a report of shots fired in a home in the 16700 block of NE 89th St. at approximately 1:45 a.m. on March 10. Three people were found deceased after a suspected stalker broke into the home.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man who lived in the house lying on the floor. Officers pulled him outside, where they discovered he had been shot. Officers performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Unfortunately, the victim succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Upon entering the home, officers discovered a male and female deceased inside from gunshot wounds. The stalking suspect, 38-year-old Ramin Khodakaramrezaei, was the deceased male inside the home.
Khodakaramrezaei had reportedly listened to the female victim’s podcasts and began communicating with her, according to police. The victim and suspect became friends, but when things escalated, she filed a no-contact order against him.
Redmond officers and detectives were familiar with the victim and residence because of the ongoing stalking investigation.
“Our hearts go out to the victim’s family and the Redmond community following this horrific tragedy,” said Redmond Police Chief Darrell Lowe. “This is an incredibly sad situation and the worst possible outcome of a stalking case. We will continue investigating what led to this tragic loss.”
