The man arrested in connection with a Central District double homicide on June 1 is no longer considered a suspect, KING 5 reported today.
Matalepuna Malu was arrested the day of the double homicide, when Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27, were fatally shot near Anderson-Young’s house in the 500 block of 29th Avenue South in the early morning June 1. Malu was held without bail for a federal probation violation and an assault that police say was unrelated to the fatal shooting.
Homicide Detective Cloyd Steiger confirmed to KING 5 that Malu, 26, is seen in a video walking into a SeaTac casino around the time of the slayings.
Malu has been transferred to the Federal Detention Center in SeaTac, according to jail records, and remains in custody on a federal probation violation charge.
Police are still searching for Ali Muhammed Brown, 30, who was identified as a suspect from fingerprints found in Said’s car, which was driven away after the two men were shot, according to SPD. Brown is black, 5-foot-9 and 190 pounds, with brown eyes. Police believe he is a transient who has previously frequented the South King County area. He is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone who sees Brown or has any information about his location is asked to call 911 or the Homicide Tip Line at 206-233-5000.
