Gang Member Charged For South End Club Shooting

A 24-year-old gang member is facing assault and drug charges for allegedly shooting two doormen outside a South Seattle motorcycle club.

Prosecutors say Jamaal Webb showed up at a party at the Drama Boyz motorcycle club, near Martin Luther King Jr Way S and S Henderson around 2:45pm on September 4th, and tried to push his way inside.

Doormen stopped Webb—”a documented Black Gangster Disciples” gang member, according to court records—refused to let security staff touch him, and continued his attempt to force his way into the party, which was attended by members of the Magic Wheels, Emerald Knights, and Drama Boyz motorcycle clubs.

Webb argued with the two doormen, and the 39-year-old called him a “bareback”—referring to “non-patch wearing civilians that are not affiliated with any club,” court records say—who told Webb to leave.

Court records say the confrontation escalated and a 39-year-old doorman challenged Webb to a fistfight in the club’s parking lot.

The other 44-year-old doorman tried to intervene and stepped in between the two men in the middle of the parking lot, when Webb pulled out a gun.

As the two doormen turned to walk away from the lot, Webb fired six shots, striking both men in the legs and feet, court records say.

Webb then fled.

Following the shooting, one of the victims told police he knew the gunman was a one of two twin brothers, and provided gang detectives with a photo. Detectives “immediately recognized” the man in the photo as Webb.

Court records indicate police attempted to locate Webb’s twin brother during their investigation, and discovered he had been in a federal detention center at the time of the shooting. Jamaal Webb, court records say, had been contacted by police the day of the shooting for a liquor violation in the Central District.

On September 15th, a SWAT team arrested Webb in a traffic stop after following him from his home in the 5000 block of Wilson Ave S.

Court records say after police booked Webb into King County Jail for assault, guards found nearly 23 grams of crack cocaine hidden on Webb during a strip search.

Police also found nearly $6,000 under a mattress in Webb’s home.

Prosecutors say Webb has prior convictions for auto theft and drug possession and delivery. He is being held in the King County Jail on $500,000 bail.
