‘Not guilty’ plea in shooting death
Man charged with first-degree murder in slaying of 19-year-old man

A young man is charged with first-degree murder in a weekend shooting that left a ‘marked man’ dead, authorities say. A 22-year-old man was charged with first-degree murder and first-degree assault Monday in a shooting that left a teenager dead in Tacoma. The victim reportedly was a “marked man,” authorities said.
Benjamin Salofi Asaeli pleaded not guilty in Pierce County Superior Court in the shooting death of 19-year-old Faalata Fola Jr. of Tukwila.

Asaeli was ordered held in lieu of $1 million bail.

Authorities believe Asaeli used a handgun to shoot Fola seven to nine times as Fola sat inside a car near South 4th and Dock streets at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Witnesses told police Fola was attempting to fix the stereo in his girlfriend’s car at the time.

A woman in the back seat was nearly hit by some of the bullets, according to charging documents, which led to the assault charge.

Police said Asaeli and a group of companions arrived in the area and parked their car not far from where Fola was working on the stereo. Police believe Asaeli, armed with a semiautomatic handgun, and his friends walked to where Fola was working. Someone in Asaeli’s group made a derogatory remark about Fola and challenged him to step out of the car, according to charging documents.

Shortly thereafter, someone yelled something about a gun and Asaeli allegedly opened fire and fled with his companions. Witnesses said Fola was unarmed. Police later found a handgun in the glove box of his girlfriend’s car.

Friends drove Fola to the hospital where he died.

Witnesses later told police that Fola was a “marked man” because he had treated some people disrespectfully recently.

Several people told investigators Fola had received threats shortly before his death.

Acting on witness tips, police tracked Asaeli to his home and found a gun hidden in his bedroom, according to the charging documents.

The gun is the same caliber as the one used in the shooting, the documents state.

YOU WILL BE MISSED BLACC...
