Police: Man fatally shot intervening in domestic dispute

SEATTLE (AP) — Prosecutors in Washington state say a Kent man called 911 in March to report his roommate had been shot in the chest after trying to intervene in a domestic disturbance he heard in a neighbor’s apartment. The Seattle Times reported that court records show King County prosecutors charged 27-year-old Darian Downing last week with second-degree murder in connection with the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Marcus Golden. Court records say Downing, who was also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, was out on bail in an unrelated domestic-violence robbery and assault case. Downing’s attorneys, Ramona Brandes and Matthew Heintz, did not respond to an email seeking comment.
