(LONG BEACH, Wash.) - 45-year old Martin A. Jones of Seaview, Washington was arrested in Long Beach and booked into the Pacific County Jail in South Bend, on charges of Attempted Murder and Assault in the 1st degree.

He is the suspect in the weekend shooting of Trooper Scott Johnson. Media reports state that the suspect is the husband of a woman who had just been arrested for driving under the influence.

Trooper Johnson was inventorying the woman's car when the assailant approached him, said several words and then shot the trooper after he turned around, with one round striking him in the back of the head.

The Seattle Times says according to court documents, a day after being shot in the head, State Patrol Trooper Scott Johnson helped identify the suspected shooter, from his hospital bed.

Trooper Krista Hedstrom with the Washington State Patrol, says search warrants are currently being sought in an attempt to obtain important evidence.

"While we have a suspect in custody the investigation continues. Investigators still need tips from the public regarding associates, vehicles, firearms, and structures associated with Mr. Jones."

She says if you have information please call 1-800-283-7808 or outside Washington State 1-360-405-6650.

Scott Johnson is continuing to recover from the shooting.
