A 20-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the August fatal shooting of 18-year-old Bryan Dominguez-Navarro in Tukwila.
The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Treston D. Baladez-Carrillo with first-degree murder, first-degree assault and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm on Sept. 16.
Baladez-Carrillo was arrested Sept. 14 in Hayden, Idaho, and is awaiting extradition to Washington. Bail was set at $3 million, and arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 29 at the Regional Justice Center in Kent.
At about 5:40 p.m. on Aug. 14, Tukwila Police responded to a report of a shooting in the parking lot of the LaRochelle Apartments, 3445 S. 144th St.
Dominguez-Navarro, who would have been a senior at Foster High School, was pronounced dead at the scene with gunshot wounds in his chin and torso. A 24-year-old man who was with Dominguez-Navarro was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious but non-life-threatening gunshot wounds to his stomach and legs. Witnesses told police a man fled the scene of the shooting.
The 24-year-old victim identified Baladez-Carrillo as the shooter. The victim told detectives he and Dominguez-Navarro arranged to meet Baladez-Carrillo in the parking lot to sell him a half pound of marijuana, according to probable cause statement.
“Carrillo approached the passenger side of the BMW where Bryan was seated,” the probable cause statement said. “Bryan handed the marijuana, which consisted of two brands of marijuana packaged together, to Carrillo. Carrillo had the package in his hands and asked Bryan to confirm the previously agreed upon price of $1,200 which Bryan confirmed verbally. Carrillo then pulled out a pistol from his pocket and shot at least one round at Bryan.”
Baladez-Carrillo fired at least nine shots with a 9 mm handgun, according to charging documents.
Carrillo was convicted in King County Superior Court on Oct. 28, 2015 of one count conspiracy to commit delivery of cocaine and two counts possession of cocaine and was not allowed to possess a firearm as a result of the convictions.
