Washington murderer Dennis Clark III had history of domestic violence

Dennis Clark III, 27, fatally shot his girlfriend in Federal Way, Washington, which is south of Seattle on Sunday night. Clark shared an apartment with the woman, Justine Baez, 24. He then shot and killed three men who were in the apartment complex. Police responding to the incident encountered Clark in a stairwell. When he ignored commands to stop reaching for a hand gun, police fired and killed him.

Back in 2002, when Clark was in high school, he allegedly shot a girl with a BB gun after she broke up with him. In her application for a domestic violence protection order, the girl described Clark as controlling, and said he had an “anger problem.” Clark was not prosecuted in the case.

  1. In my local newspaper this morning – another man accused of a jealous rage double murder is on trial. The prosecutor’s theory is that Patrick Latko killed a man and his mother because he believed the man was dating his former girlfriend. All the same behaviors – jealousy, control, lack of emotion.
