State representative candidate shot by BB gun in Auburn

Pastor Carey Anderson said he was in unincorporated Auburn when someone shot him from a vehicle with the BB gun.

AUBURN, Wash. — A candidate for state representative in King County’s 30th legislative district said he was shot twice at point-blank range by a BB gun Thursday night while planting campaign signs.

Pastor Carey Anderson said he was in unincorporated Auburn when someone shot him from a vehicle with the BB gun.

Anderson said things could have been a lot worse after suffering minor injuries.

“I think if it was a real gun I’d be dead or in the hospital and I wouldn’t be able to walk,” he said.

Now he and his team have a new concern in the election campaign.

“Recruiting while Black; you’re in danger and in danger,” Anderson said.

The King County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Anderson called 911 and the deputies responded to the scene and filed a report.

“The case is open and we have no suspicious information to provide at this time,” the sheriff’s office told KING 5.

Anderson said he believes the incident was racially motivated.

When a suspect is caught, rather than punishing a suspect, Anderson hopes to get through to him.

“I don’t want to accuse him, I want to talk to him,” Anderson said. “I want to give him a second chance because I was given a second chance. You see a cancer survivor.”
