State v. D'Angelo A. Saloy
Guilty Verdict in 2008 Murder: A gang member has been convicted in connection with a shooting that killed 15-year-old Quincy Coleman and wounded a second teen near Garfield High School in 2008. The jury convicted D’Angelo A. Saloy last week of Murder in the First Degree and Attempted Murder in the First Degree, both with firearm enhancements. Saloy, 22, faces a sentence range of approximately 51 to 64 years in prison. On the evening of October 31, 2008, a Ford Taurus drove past several individuals who were standing near the baseball field behind Garfield High School. Approximately five to seven shots were fired from the vehicle. Coleman and Demario Clark, 16 at the time, were both struck by bullets. Coleman, who was shot twice in the back, died at the scene. Witness statements tied Saloy to the shooting. “Thanks to the outstanding work of Seattle Police detectives and the deputy prosecutors handling the case, justice has been done in this very difficult case,” said King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg. Sentencing is scheduled for September 10 at 8:30 a.m. before Judge Regina Cahan. The case was investigated by Seattle Police detective Dana Duffy. The case was prosecuted by Senior Deputy Prosecutors Jessica Berliner and Julie Kline.
