The Superior Court of King County Washington filed documents against Galma Adam Waqo, charging the defendant with the crime of “murder in the first degree.”
The bail suggested was $1,000,000.
The incident occurred Aug. 23, and initially, Jamal Rashad Woods-Hall, the victim, was pronounced dead, but he survived the shooting. The shooting took place around the area of Boren Ave. and South Main St. in Seattle. According to the filed report, the car with the victim was located in the “parking lot at a hookah bar in that location.” The report states an African American male suffered gunshots to the head and torso and then was transported to Harborview Medical Center. According to the officer who filed the statement, there were two women who identified suspects.
The women stated they had been at Skyway Bowl earlier that evening, were in SeaTac briefly, and then stopped in the parking lot where the hookah lounge was located.
According to the report, three males approached the car, dressed in hoodies. One of the females identified accused Waqo, who she stated was part of the “Holly Park” gang. The second male she identified as Tony Nguyen, an Asian Black male. The third suspect was not identified. The suspects asked the driver if he was from Tukwila. He said he was not, but another passenger, when he was asleep in the car, after awakening, said he was.
The suspects reportedly yelled “Holly Park!” and started firing into the car.
According to Detective Cloyd Steiger’s statement, Waqo denied being in the area, and then stated he had been at a hookah bar in Burien, downtown, and then Chinatown. (end)
