SEATTLE - A judge has set bail at $5 million for a man charged with killing a 12-year-old boy in Skyway.
Curtis J. Walker pleaded not guilty Thursday in King County Superior Court in the death of Alajawan Brown outside a convenience store.
Police initially believed that Brown was struck by a stray bullet from a shooting at an apartment complex nearby. But now they say that Walker was a friend of the victim shot in the apartment, and he targeted Brown because he mistakenly believed Brown was responsible for the apartment shooting.
Prosecutors say Walker has a lengthy criminal history, including several convictions for assault, drugs and firearms violations.
