Bryon White, a senior at Ballard High school, was arrested and charged with the murder of David Peterson, 54, who was killed in the Greenwood area on Feb. 23rd. White is to be charged as an adult for the killing.
White was apparently homeless.
Apparently right before Peterson's robbery and subsequent murder, three suspects had taken money from a nearby restaurant and had tried to rob another individual. It is unclear if they were involved with the Peterson robbery/murder. No other suspects have been found or arrested.
From the Stranger Slog:
A conversation I caught between an 18-year-old black Ballard High School student and his mother...
The Mother: "How the hell can a kid get a gun, when he doesn't even have a home?"
The son: "A gun is easy to get. A home is very hard to get."
