Suspect in Georgetown homicide facing potential 3rd strike

A SeaTac man who was charged last week with second-degree murder is facing a possible life sentence if convicted of his third-strike offense after a fatal shooting outside a Georgetown motorcycle club.

A King County judge ordered Joshua Everybodytalksabout, 37, to be held without bail as a persistent offender as he awaits trial in the Dec. 7 shooting death of Tory Holmes, charging papers say.

Holmes, 38, of Seattle, was killed after an event at the Magic Wheels Motorcycle Club on South Doris Street, court records show.

Everybodytalksabout, a member of the Rare Breed Motorcycle Club, is also charged with first-degree assault for injuring Terry O’Neil, 40, and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, charging papers say.

Everybodytalksabout was arrested on Thursday after witnesses identified him as the shooter, according to the charges. Court records show Everybodytalksabout has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 1990, when he was 13.

His prior three-strike offenses are for second-degree assault and first-degree manslaughter.

Seattle police responded to the Magic Wheels clubhouse in Georgetown just after 4 a.m. Dec. 7 and found Holmes with a gunshot wound to his groin area and O’Neil with a gunshot wound to the leg, charging papers say.

Both were taken to Harborview Medical Center, where Holmes later died.

Officers found five .45-caliber casings at the shooting scene and the lead homicide detective received information from a confidential source identifying Everybodytalksabout as a possible suspect, according to the charges. Others also came forward and identified Everybodytalksabout, saying he was wearing a red sweatshirt and was seen standing over Holmes before shooting O’Neil, the charges say.

Everybodytalksabout’s prior strike offenses and alleged use of a handgun despite previous court orders barring him from possessing firearms are “clear and convincing evidence that the defendant has a propensity for violence” and is a danger to the community, Senior Deputy Prosecutor Don Raz wrote in charging documents.
