SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say a man arrested for investigation of homicide in the fatal shooting of two men in the city’s Central District earlier this month has been cleared of the crime.

KING-TV reports (https://is.gd/KWsg10 ) that Homicide Detective Cloyd Steiger confirms 26-year-old Matalepuna Malu is no longer a suspect after his alibi checked out. The detective says Malu is seen on video walking into a casino at around the time of the killings.

Malu turned himself in after police named him as a suspect, saying he wanted to clear his name.

KING says jail records confirm that Malu was released into federal custody, where he was sought on a federal probation weapons violation.

The June 1 shooting victims have been identified as 23-year-old Dwone Anderson-Young and 27-year-old Ahmed Said.
