A 20-year-old Seattle woman, who is alleged to have been involved in a shooting in Belltown on Saturday, was charged Tuesday with drive-by shooting by King County prosecutors.
In documents filed in King County Superior Court, prosecutors allege that Nia C. Hall was found in a car that was seen by witnesses speeding from the scene of the shooting, a parking lot near Cellar’s Grill & Lounge in the 2100 block of First Avenue.
After the car was involved in a crash, police said they found Hall inside with a handgun in her pants with bullets matching those found at the shooting scene, the documents said.
The shooting in Belltown was the second in that neighborhood last week and the first of three driveby shootings within a 24-hour period in Seattle over the weekend.
Hall is being held in King County Jail on $200,000 and is scheduled to be arraigned on Feb. 9.
