Kent man convicted in fatal shooting of boy, 12
Prosecutors told King County Superior Court jurors that Curtis Walker, 35, shot the boy after confusing him with a rival gang member. On Thursday, jurors found Walker guilty of first-degree murder in the April 29, 2010, shooting of Alajawan Brown.
Prosecutors say that just before the shooting, Walker and a friend got into a possibly gang-related gunfight in Skyway. Deputy Prosecutor Jessica Berliner said the boy had just stepped off a bus and had nothing to do with the gun battle. However, he was wearing a blue windbreaker and prosecutors say Walker thought he was a rival gang member.
