Ebenezer Haily Obituary, Death – According to FOX 13, the family of the student who was killed in the shooting that occurred at Ingraham High School in Seattle on Tuesday (November 17) was able to identify him at the court appearance of the juvenile suspects. As the impact statements written by the victim’s family were being read out loud in court, they named the suspect as Ebenezer Haily, who was 17 years old. They said that Haily was always up for having a good time and that he cherished spending time with his buddies.
A victim advocate from the Seattle Police Department named Cindy Sandiho-Chang spoke on behalf of a relative and said, “I do not feel safe for myself or my family, and I am grieving for my family.” “There must be justice for my nephew Ebenezer Haily,” said the speaker. Two adolescents have been taken into custody in connection with the gunshot that resulted in the death of Haily on the morning of November 8th. The victim, his companions, and the 14-year-old suspect are accused of getting into a fight in a restroom over a gun, according to the Seattle Police Department. After the brawl, the alleged shooter reportedly fired multiple shots into the victim’s back at some point in the future. At a metro bus stop, the authorities detained a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old for questioning.
Official charges of first-degree premeditated murder, first-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, and second-degree unauthorized possession of a firearm have been brought against the juvenile, who is 14 years old. Reporters said that Judge Avril Rothrock issued the order to keep him in custody until the next hearing in the case. Regarding the juvenile of 15 years of age who was taken into custody at the same time as the alleged gunman, Rothrock did not believe him to be an accomplice to the homicide.
According to FOX 13, Rothrock added, “[He] is not charged with perpetrating or arranging in advance the violence that is claimed to have been done.” I do not hold him as an accomplice, and the state does not charge him with being an accomplice either. It has been stated that neither he nor the 14-year-old was granted bond. The prosecutor’s office in King County submitted a request to the court asking that the 14-year-old be tried as an adult; however, the judge has not yet made a judgment regarding this request.
