FARMINGTON -- One of the victims in Sunday's deadly shootout in front of a Walmart in Port Orchard, Wash., was scheduled to appear in 2nd District Court in Farmington on Wednesday.
Anthony Allen Martinez, 30, who ran from two sheriff's deputies while firing at them Sunday, pleaded not guilty in November to a first-degree felony charge of kidnapping. He was accused of taking Astrid Valdivia, 13, from North Davis Junior High School in September, after Valdivia left her family a note at their Clearfield home saying she was running away.
A pretrial hearing had been set for 9 a.m. Wednesday.
"It's a tragic event for a lot of people, and I just hope all the families impacted can get through this," said Todd Utzinger, the public defender appointed to Martinez.
After the two disappeared in September, they were found together in Sacramento, Calif., in October and were brought back to Utah. Valdivia was sent to live in a foster home in South Salt Lake.
Martinez was identified Monday morning by the Kitsap County coroner. The other victim in the shooting, described as a young woman, had not been identified as of Monday afternoon.
South Salt Lake police say Valdivia fled the foster home Jan. 18, leaving her tracking monitor behind. South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller confirmed late Monday that Valdivia was still missing but had not been identified as the second victim of the shooting
"We still have an open missing-person case and still hopes she turns up safe," he said.
Destany Droge, 22, of Bremerton, Wash., said the two people killed appeared to be a couple.
"As soon as she saw him get shot, she ran for him," she told The News Tribune of Tacoma. "She put herself in the line of fire."
"We believe that she and the deceased gunman knew each other, that they were together," said Kitsap County sheriff's spokesman Scott Wilson. He said investigators don't know yet the relationship between the two.
Sunday's shootout began after officers responded to a call about a suspicious person at the store in Port Orchard, about 15 miles west of Seattle across Puget Sound. Two deputies found Martinez and tried to talk to him, but he began running and they gave chase.
"For reasons not yet known, the suspect turned and fired multiple shots," Wilson said.
Both officers were hit and unable to return fire, but a female officer arriving on the scene shot and killed Martinez, Wilson said.
There is still a question of who shot the young woman, who died later at a Tacoma hospital. Ballistics tests could show whether it was the deputy or the suspect, the state patrol said.
The two sheriff's deputies wounded in Port Orchard are expected to survive.
