Alki shooting suspect now held on $500,000 bail
The suspect in the assault and burglary on Alki on Sunday Nov. 29, Garrett Heinemann, made his first appearance hearing before a King County Judge on Dec.1.
The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office asked a judge to hold Mr. Heinemann on $500,000 bail and presented a first appearance document written by police. A judge found probable cause for first-degree assault and first-degree burglary and set bail at $500,000.
The first appearance document is not the same as the documents required by law for a felony charging decision. The prosecutor's office anticipates getting those from Seattle police. Mr. Heinemann is expected to remain in jail on $500,000 bail.
The shooting victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center and was last listed in critical condition.
