SUDDEN VALLEY, Wash. – A Sudden Valley man is dead and the Whatcom County Sheriff says his son is responsible.

Sheriff Bill Elfo says one of Steven Siebert’s other sons found his 60-year-old father shot dead in his home on Lake Louise Drive Tuesday night.

Elfo says Siebert’s older son, Joshua Adams quickly became a person of interest.

Elfo says Adams drove to Skagit County, stole a truck and drove it to Island County.

Deputies spotted him on Highway 20 near Coupeville and took him into custody after a long chase.

Elfo says investigators still don’t know the motive for the killing.
