Woman killed in double shooting

Kingman police are searching for a man in connection with the slaying of his wife and the wounding of a man said to be her boyfriend.

The killing was the first homicide this year in Kingman city limits, according to KPD detective Dave Coffin.

Kingman Police are currently searching for Steven Arthur Cook following the shootings, which took place at a residence in the 2000 block of Davis Avenue.

Kingman Police responded to a report of a homicide at 9:30 p.m.

on Friday.

Upon arrival, officers found Bonnie Lynn Cook, 36, lying in the residence with a single gunshot wound to the back.

She was not breathing and had no pulse, said Coffin.

Officers began CPR, and paramedics from Kingman Fire and River Medical continued trying to revive the woman on the way to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Officers then located a second victim, David Ralph Thompson, 36, who had received a gunshot wound to his buttocks.

Thompson apparently went to summon help after he was shot and was located a couple homes down from the original residence, Coffin said.

Thompson was transported to KRMC, where he is in the intensive care unit with non-life threatening injuries.

An investigation into the shootings revealed that Cook's estranged husband, Steven Arthur Cook, 41, had come to the residence and was believed to be hiding behind the residence when Thompson pulled up in a vehicle, Coffin said.

Cook apparently fired several shots at Thompson, at which time Thompson fled.

It is believed that Cook then forced entry into the residence and shot his wife.

Cook's vehicle was found in the 3100 block of Mark Drive at about 9 a.m.


Cook is 5-10, 165 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair.

He has graying hair and a goatee.

At this time, officers are continuing the search for Cook.

Anyone with information on Cook's whereabouts is urged to contact Kingman Police at 753-2191 and ask for Coffin, or call Silent Witness at 753-1234.
