WANTED IN SEATTLE —
Detectives need your help identifying a bunch of accused armed robbers targeting people on the streets of Seattle.

Take a look at the photos: The guy in the orange shoes is Jamala Myers, he’s been arrested and charged for robbing and shooting a man in Capitol Hill after detectives say he and six others stole the victim’s phone. Detectives say Myers also accidentally shot Trayve’on Scott in the foot as they escaped. Scott is the one in the black pants and grey hoodie. He’s also been arrested and charged, but now police need your help to identify the other five suspects who were with them that night.

The man in the red hoodie is the one detectives say stole the victim's cell phone. Investigators are hoping you know his name along with the man in the sweatshirt that says ‘California’ and has a Golden Bear on it.

Another suspect has a black jacket with a dark blue hood and blue shoes, we have a pretty good shot of his face.

The victim was shot in the leg and lived but this crew is still believed to be looking for more people to rob at gunpoint and needs to be stopped

"In the video you see shots of what I'd call casing potential victims,” says Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “Some of the victims are not by themselves and they left them alone, but as individuals walk by, they kind of look at them, kind of check them out and see exactly what they were carrying. So keep in mind these guys are armed. We don't figure that was the only gun in possession of these guys. We also suspect that they're responsible for hitting other victims on Capitol Hill as they've been leaving bars or other establishments up there. So these guys are armed and dangerous and obviously they're not afraid to shoot someone."

CAPITOL HILL ARMED ROBBERSThe first suspect in the dark jacket is believed to be 18 to 20 years old and he was hanging out around E. Howell and Summit Ave. E. in Capitol Hill when he was caught on camera.

The second suspect in red seems a lot thinner. He was wearing white tennis shoes...

The third suspect, again, was wearing that ‘California’ sweatshirt.

The cameras didn’t get a good look at the fourth and fifth suspects, but knowing they hang around with Jamala Myers and Trayve'on Scott may help you identify them.
