CaptureSEATTLE — Murder and attempted murder charges were filed Friday against a 30-year-old man arrested in Los Angeles in connection with a March 11 shooting in SeaTac.

The King County Prosecutor’s Office said it had filed charges against Trayvon Cail, who remains in custody in Los Angeles. He was arrested there on March 20.

The shooting on March 11 in SeaTac left one man dead and another wounded. “The defendant allegedly shot each victim and then stole a large sum of money,” the prosecutor’s office said.

In addition to the murder and attempted murder charges, Cail was charged with first-degree robbery, too.

Earlier report from March 11:

Police responded to a 911 call about a shooting shortly before 3 a.m. Monday — when they arrived on the scene, they found one man dead and another critically wounded. The injured man was transported to Harborview Medical Center.

The woman who called police said the shooting took place at her home in the 3000 block of South 146th Street in SeaTac. The shooting took place in a secondary building on the property, and not the residence.

Deputies found a marijuana grow operation with about 50 plants at the home and are looking into whether the grow operation was legal.

Police said they don’t believe the incident was a random shooting and they are looking into the relationship between the suspect and the victims.

The suspect is at large and police have not released any specific information about the suspect’s description.

    pot didnt shoot the gun motive was probably money Hey lets ban money! The barter system could work. Guns are not the problem stupid people are the problem. Ive been carrying a hand gun for 25 yrs and fortunately ive never had to shoot someone. That being said its a sadistic criminal or insane mind that is the problem. FIX THAT!

    If you ban money no one can steal it. Bartering is fair exchange is no robery. I get you what you need and you get me what i need works out great. Government wouldnt like it very much cause they are the bigest money miser's and of corse if you just try to take my things well here comes the gun for self defense not the guns fault not my fault but the fault of the thief, and yes another one shot but justifyibly. This is why we do need guns mone or not! The criminals will always have guns in fact the guns they have are not legal its not legal for them to carry so how does banning guns protect citizens? By owning one

    If i point a gun at you and you dont have one I can do whatever i want! If i point a gun at you and you point yours at me well now we can have a conversation and possibly resolve the matter without an incident. Thatswhy North Korea wants nuclear weapons , cause he's tired of having them pointed at him. I know he's insane and should not have it but how can you blame him Nukes pointed at his country. Get rid of all weapons and i will surrender mine till then give up the gun ban thing its a JOKE! DONT BE A SHEEPLE!
