On Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020, the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office filed a second-degree murder charge and a first-degree unlawful firearm charge against Wilson Lee Flint, a 28-year old man accused of a fatal Nov. 24 shooting in SeaTac.
Prosecutors allege that on Nov. 24, 2020, Flint shot Adam Bierig, 29, who died from his injuries two days later on Nov. 26, 2020.
Charging papers say that Flint was inside his house while an acquaintance of his and Bierig’s was attempting to retrieve property from Flint’s mother’s car parked in the driveway in front of the house. The acquaintance repeatedly contacted the defendant and asked for assistance in retrieving the property, but was unsuccessful. Ultimately Bierig broke the window of Flint’s mother’s car, and Flint then opened the front door and shot the victim with a rifle as he ran away.
When police arrived at Flint’s house, he refused to come out and a 5-hour standoff ensued. He later admitted to investigators that he intentionally shot Bierig because the victim had broken the window of his mother’s car.
Bierig died after the first appearance, on Nov. 26, and prosecutors increased the bail request to $2 million. A judge agreed.
Flint has multiple prior convictions from charges handled by the prosecutor’s office, and was released by the Department of Corrections at the completion of his most recent sentence on April 15, 2019.
Flint also has a pending burglary case, filed on Jan. 7.
He remains in the King County Jail, and will be arraigned Dec. 10.
