Suspect in Fatal Bellevue Bar Shooting was Convicted in 'Tuba Man' Killing

Police are looking for Ja’mari Alexander Alan Jones, 19, one of three teens convicted in the 2008 beating death of a Seattle figure known as "Tuba Man."

Bellevue Police are looking for a 19-year-old man suspected in a fatal shooting early Monday at a downtown club.

They issued a warrant for the arrest of Ja’mari Alexander Alan Jones. He is believed to be armed and dangerous, and the public is asked to call 9-1-1 if they see him.

Bellevue Police spokeswoman Officer Carla Iafrate confirmed Monday night that Jones was one of three teens convicted for the 2008 beating death of a beloved Seattle figure known as "Tuba Man."

Jones is described as 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 140 pounds. Police are also looking for a white Nissan Maxima, with Washington license plate AHZ1672.

Jones is suspected of fatally shooting a 30-year-old Seattle man just after 1 a.m. Monday at the crowded Munchbar in Bellevue Square, where a Seattle Seahawks after-party was going on. About 600 people were at the bar. A second person was shot and wounded.

If anyone has information about Jones, they are asked to call 425-452-2546, or email PDTIPLINE@Bellevuewa.gov

Will his juvenile record be used in court when they catch him? Anyone know?

Disappointed in the amount of crime is sparring up in Bellevue....I wonder if there is a correlation to the fact that there was a "Seahawks" after party....I feel like a lot of thugs are in major league sports....particularly football...and for all you "racist" card pulling folks, why are you so upset? Mullen's posting facts...cold hard facts...do I like it? Of course not! But that doesn't mean I'm stupid, if I don't like the fact that blacks are causing more crime, I change it the only way I can, friending and making sure I am a good influence to troubled black teens....but you can never ignore the facts...that is like condemning young people to a life of crime.
