Moore was taken into custody May 13 after a two-day investigation following the incident. The arrest took place at a residence in Eatonville, where Moore was found without incident, according to the Seattle Police Department.

The stabbing occurred on May 11 at approximately 5:49 p.m. at the light rail station on Broadway East. The victim, Corey Bellett, 37, sustained multiple stab wounds and was transported to Harborview Medical Center, where he tragically died.

Security footage from Sound Transit showed a confrontation between Bellett and two men, one of whom was identified as Moore. According to the police report, an argument ensued after Bellett brushed past Moore and another man on an escalator. The argument escalated into a physical altercation, during which Moore allegedly produced a knife and stabbed Bellett multiple times.

Moore was identified through a combination of witness statements and video footage. A witness, who was with Moore at the time of the incident, provided detailed information to the police, leading to Moore’s identification and subsequent arrest.
