King County Prosecutors have filed charges against a 15-year-old boy for allegedly shooting a 20-year-old man in the Central District last week.
According to court records, the 15-year-old approached the man as he was getting in to his car on 26th and Dearborn and fired several shots, striking the man in the head. The man was able to flee from the scene.
Court documents say the 20-year-old man had an “ongoing conflict” with the boy, who lives two blocks away from where the shooting took place.
The boy is being charged with assault and unlawful possession of a firearm and records indicate he has previously been convicted on drug and auto theft charges.
Prosecutors will hold a hearing on August 29th to discuss whether to charge the 15-year-old as an adult
