Inquiry Ordered In Man's Death At Gun Store

King County Executive Tim Hill has ordered an inquest in the death of a man killed in a shooting in a Renton gun store Feb. 3.

An April 3 inquest date was set in the death of David Zaback, who was shot seven times in the chest and abdomen by King County Police Officer Tim Lally and a clerk at H&J Leather & Firearms Ltd. in the Renton Highlands area, after Zaback entered the store and, according to authorities, said he intended to rob it.

Lally was having coffee at the store.

Zaback, 33, of Renton, fired first, according to Renton police. He died in Harborview Medical Center.

Zaback's family said he suffered from a mental disorder that caused him to be irrational at times.
