20-year-old charged with murder in 2008 Halloween gang-related slaying of teen

Murder and assault charges were filed Tuesday against D'Angelo Saloy, 20, in connection with the gang-related shooting death of 15-year-old Quincy Coleman and the wounding of a second teen near Garfield High School on Halloween night 2008. 

Police arrested Saloy on Monday, the moment he walked out of the Washington Corrections Center in Shelton, where he was serving time for unlawful possession of an AK-47 and assaulting an officer.

He was immediately taken to the King County Jail, where bail was set at $5 million Tuesday.

According to police, Saloy opened fire from the back seat of his car around 9:30 p.m. on Halloween night 2008, striking Coleman twice in the back in gang-related violence. Saloy allegedly hit one of Coleman's friends in the wrist and the abdomen as well.

During the four-year investigation into Coleman's death, police said they learned Saloy shared details about the shooting to his friends. 

Saly will be arraigned on Oct. 1.  If convicted of all charges, he faces a sentencing range of 43 years to nearly 55 years in prison.
