Murder charge filed in 2008 shooting at Garfield High School

King County prosecutors today filed charges of first-degree murder and first-degree assault against Deangelo A. Saloy in connection with the shooting of two 15-year-old boys outside Garfield High School on Halloween night 2008.

Saloy, 20, was due to be released from prison yesterday on unrelated charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and assaulting a police officer with a deadly weapon, but was instead arrested and transferred to the King County Jail. His bail is set at $5 million.

Around 9:30 p.m. Oct. 31, 2008, Quincy Coleman and a group of friends were standing behind Garfield when a silver Ford Taurus pulled up near the group along 25th Avenue. A gunman opened fire from the back seat, striking Coleman twice in the back. He died at the scene.

A second 15-year-old was shot but survived.

Police believe the drive-by shooting was in retaliation for the August 2008 shooting of Pierre Lapointe in Rainier Valley.
