Man charged with murder for allegedly shooting, later killing 19-year-old in drive-by

A 19-year-old man is now facing murder charges after the person he allegedly shot in the head in a drive-by shooting in Federal Way on the 4th of July succumbed to his injuries. 

Police say neighbors in the 33400 block of 35th Avenue Southwest were outside on their lawns celebrating the Fourth of July when the shooting happened. 

Neighbors told police that several of them had yelled at the driver of a white sedan to ‘slow down’ because they were speeding through a residential neighborhood and there were children outside. 

A passenger in the sedan, 19-year-old Antonio Agee, began shooting out the window of the vehicle, court documents said.

One of the bullets hit a 19-year-old who was lighting sparklers in front of his own house.  Another round went through the bedroom window of a 12-year-old, court documents said. 

The 19-year-old victim was shot and was sent to Harborview Medical Center, where he remained in extreme critical condition, but later died of his injuries. 

Agee was arrested in Auburn days later and has since been charged with first-degree assault. He was additionally charged with first-degree murder. 

"While the defendant has no criminal conviction history the defendant’s actions, in this case, make clear he poses a substantial danger to the community. The requested bail is appropriate to protect the community and to ensure the defendant’s appearance in court," the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office said.

A judge agreed to set bail at $2 million. 

The investigation remains ongoing.
