Breaking: Surveillance Shows Convicted Felon Kill Eina Kwon in her Car in Downtown Seattle

View at Twitter


I’ve obtained the horrific shooting video showing Korean American woman Eina Kwon being gunned down in her white Tesla in downtown #Seattle last week. Kwon was 32 weeks pregnant. Authorities say the baby was delivered via emergency surgery but later died at the hospital. Kwon’s husband was also hit by several bullets but is expected to survive. Police say the shooter is 30 year old Cordell Goosby, a convicted felon. He’s charged in Kwon’s murder and remains behind bars.

Hundreds March for Eina

This tragedy struck a chord with people from all walks of life who are just sick and tired of the crime, open air drug use, and deteriorating public safety conditions in parts of #Seattle

Convicted Felon

This is a mugshot from Cook County Illinois where Goosby has ties. According to court documents, Goosby claims he saw a gun in the car so he fired multiple shots into the window. But no weapon was ever found in the vehicle. Police also say the weapon allegedly used by Goosby was stolen from Lakewood PD. When officers found him nearby, he put his hands up and said, “I did it, I did it,” Right now, investigators say this all appears to be random and the Kwons did not have any prior interaction with Goosby as far as they know. #Seattle

Goosby Charges

-Murder in the First Degree with a Firearm Enhancement

-Attempted Murder in the First Degree with a Firearm Enhancement

I have added to the Q&A sent out to all media by King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. #Seattle

Wow, it appears Cordell Goosby looks straight into the camera and nods as he’s being placed into the police cruiser last week. He’s been charged in the brutal slaying of Korean American business owner Eina Kwon.
