A 45-year-old man has been charged with murder and assault in a double homicide that took place in Georgetown last January.

Seattle Police developed probable cause to charge the man. He is currently booked in King County Jail.

Police responded to 5th Avenue S and S Michigan Street in January to find two men in a vehicle with fatal gunshot wounds. Both men were deceased at the scene.

Another double homicide happened in the same complex last October.

Suspect identified in murder of two Federal Way bartenders in May

Samuel Ramirez Jr., 31, has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of two bartenders at the Stars & Bar Grill on May 21, according to KIRO 7.

Katie Duhnke and Jessyca Hohn were gunned down along with a man in Federal Way. The man did not sustain life-threatening injuries.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Ramirez with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, and attempted murder.

When the bartenders reportedly confronted Ramirez about bringing a gun into the bar, the situation escalated into a physical confrontation in the parking lot, when Ramirez allegedly shot and killed Duhnke and Hohn. Both women died at the scene. The man was hospitalized and survived.
