Investigative report filed by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

$50 Million Bail
Charged: Naveed Afzal HAQ, 30 undated photo on left; being booked in King County July 29, 2006 (right)

29 July 2006; UPDATED 11:30 p.m. ET: Initial efforts to describe the shooting at a Seattle Jewish Center as a random act of violence by a chemically imbalanced man without any association to organized Islam are beginning to fall apart. As initially reported by the Northeast Intelligence Network, the Muslim man who shot six women, one fatally, at a Jewish Center Friday afternoon appeared to have planned the shooting well before the incident.

The suspect, Naveed Afzal HAQ, 30, obtained the two handguns and spare ammunition he used in the shooting just days earlier, and reportedly used his computer and the Internet to identify his target and the area. According to a law enforcement source close to this investigation and speaking exclusively to this agency on the condition of anonymity, there also appears to be some evidence to suggest that the suspect conducted physical surveillance of the building prior to the shooting, although this source declined to be more specific to avoid compromising the case for the prosecution.Police report that shortly after 4:00 p.m. on Friday, HAQ hid behind a potted plant in a Jewish charity’s foyer and forced his way through a security door by holding a gun to a 13-year-old girl’s head. Once inside the center, HAQ began to randomly fire his weapons at the various women inside the building, killing one woman at the scene and wounding five others. The dead woman was identified as [b]Pam WAECHTER,[/b] 58, of Seattle.

Statement of Probable Cause

According to the statement of probable cause filed with the King County court, HAQ told a 911 dispatcher:

“These are Jews and I’m tired of getting pushed around and our people getting pushed around by the situation in the Middle East.�

While talking with the 911 operators, he identified himself by name and said:

“This is a hostage situation and I wanted these Jews to get out…� During the same conversation, HAQ he told the dispatcher he wanted police to call the media and that he had a gun pointed at a woman’s head. He said he was acting alone and had not been drinking. Based on the information provided to the Northeast Intelligence Network, HAQ “sounded lucid and coherent� during the incident and well afterward, during the post-arrest interviews and interrogations.

HAQ was ordered held on $50 million bail today, pending formal charges of murder and attempted murder.

Family Ties to Islamic Center

The suspect’s father, Mian A. HAQ of Pascoe is a founding member of the Islamic Center of Tri-Cities in Richland, Washington. His parents moved to Pasco in 2004 after living in Richland for well over ten years.
