Photo Released of Stand Off Shooter

March 28, 2013 Comments off

Investigators believe the name Ray Mahailovich, which is associated with the picture below  is a fictitious name.  The driver’s license that this photo is from was issued in June of 2011 with an address of 2801 Aberdeen Avenue of Hoquiam which was the location of the shooting and stand off.

The man was associated with a felony warrant out of Sacramento Co District Attorney’s Office under the name of Rick Marlowe.  That name may also be an alias.  Investigators are continuing to follow-up to verify the subject’s identity.

Anyone with information regarding this person is asked to call the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Department at 360-249-6070 ext 567.

Montesano Courthouse Attack Trial Continues

March 28, 2013 Comments off

The trial for a man accused of wounding a deputy and judge at the Grays Harbor County Courthouse in Montesano is under way in Lewis County.

Deputy Polly Davin testified Tuesday she thought she was going to die last March when she was stabbed and shot with her own gun after she confronted Steven Kravetz because he was “creeping people out.”

Judge David Edwards was stabbed when he came to the rescue. Both the deputy and judge have recovered.

Kravetz is charged with assault and attempted murder. Prosecutors say the McCleary man didn’t want to be taken into custody because there was a warrant for his arrest.

The defense is expected to argue Kravetz has diminished capacity and didn’t intend to kill anyone.
