    WA - Zachary Lamb, 27, shot to death, Spokane, 7 Nov 2014

    I live on the same side of town that Zach lived in and because Spokane is just that small, we knew a lot of the same people. I was surprised to hear that his killer has yet to be caught. Not too much is known, but I thought you guys might be able to help.

    from link above: "Several of Lamb’s friends said they had heard he was followed home Friday night by the man who shot him; that the two of them had gotten into some kind of argument prior to the shooting.

    Police spokeswoman Officer Teresa Fuller said there was nothing in the initial report about the shooting that suggested there had been an argument, but that detectives were continuing to investigate.
    "

    http://www.inlander.com/spokane/a-se...nt?oid=2385857 <- this link also mentions a possible dispute before the shooting. perhaps a road rage incident? His friends say Zachary was not one to easily anger. His girlfriend was with him when it occurred.

    Police talked to patrons and employees at Borracho, who reported that nothing unusual happened while Lamb and his friends were there. They also looked at video surveillance footage to see if they could find evidence of anyone following the couple. “We see him driving fast, but we don’t see anyone following them,” Wohl said.

    Lamb’s fiancée told police the incident may be road-rage related. Lamb’s friend and co-worker, John McLachlan, said the car Lamb was driving had been having mechanical problems. Its engine would race intermittently, causing the car to suddenly speed up and then slow down. Knapp said something must have happened on the way home. “He didn’t drive straight home,” she said. “He drove around trying to get rid of this person and thought he had.”

    Whatever the cause, a man pulled up behind the couple when they arrived home. He yelled expletives and called him the N-word, as if he was challenging Lamb to a fight, Wohl said. After several minutes, Lamb got out of his car. He was shot twice in the chest as he reached the trunk of his car before he had a chance to say a word.

    The darkness limited the description given by witnesses. The man is described as white and in his 40s with a gravelly voice and a beard. He was wearing a baseball cap. He was driving a dark-colored, boxy SUV with a roof rack that extended over the windshield.

    Thanks for posting this, I often think of Zachary. BBM above: I wonder if race played a part in this. I know there are quite a few white supremacists in eastern Washington and northern Idaho. I hope this case gets solved because he seems like such a nice young man but my hopes aren't high.
