Suspect in fatal Bellevue bar shooting convicted of Tuba Man death

Ja’mari Alexander-Alan Jones, 19

A 19-year-old man suspected by police in the shooting death of a man at a Bellevue bar early Monday was convicted in 2009 of killing a Seattle street musician known as Tuba Man.

Police have obtained a warrant for the arrest of Ja’mari Alexander-Alan Jones, who they consider armed and dangerous. Police describe Jones as being five-foot-eight and about 140 pounds. His car is described as a white Nissan Maxima with Washington state license number AHZ1672.

Witnesses told local media that as many as five shots were fired at about 1:09 a.m. at Munchbar’s Mirror Lounge in Bellevue Square.  A 30-year-old Seattle man was fatally wounded.

Jones was one of three teens who pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in April 2009 in the death of 53-year-old Ed “Tuba Man” McMichael. He was beaten during a robbery in the fall of 2008 near Seattle Center and later died of his injuries.
