According to KIRO 7, the Seattle police department detained an 18-year-old woman for her alleged part in the tragic carjacking of a rideshare driver in the SoDo District on Tuesday.
The arrest was made just before 4:00. on Thursday close to 8th Avenue North and John Street. The incident, according to the Seattle police department, was probably the result of a random carjacking, and the suspect was not ridesharing.
It appears that the man who was found dead in SODO early on Tuesday morning was slain in a shooting close to T-Mobile stadium, according to the Seattle police department.
Amare W. Geda, a rideshare driver, has been named as the victim. According to the Seattle police department, the shooting occurred around 3:30 a.m. as the victim was stopped in his car on the curb of First Avenue S.
It is unlikely that the suspect uses a rideshare service.
The perpetrator took a car, shot the victim, and then drove away in it. The car is a 2014 Toyota Prius in light blue with the Washington license plate BEP3940 with one misaligned rim.
According to the Seattle police department, a passerby who saw the man lying on the ground contacted 911. When police arrived, they discovered the man suffering from a gunshot wound. The authorities pronounced him dead there.
Amare Geda, a resident of SeaTac who is 52 years old and the father of two children, was named as the victim.
Geda’s family intends to bury him in Ethiopia, and they have created a GoFundMe to cover funeral expenses and provide for his wife and kids.
At this time, the Seattle police department is not providing a description of the suspect or suspects.
Call 911 right away if you see the automobile, according to the Seattle police department, and stay away from the driver, who is thought to be armed and dangerous.
In just 12 hours, there have been two homicides in the same three SODO blocks; according to the Seattle police department, this is the 44th homicide in the city this year.
