BELLEVUE, Wash., Dec. 25 (UPI) -- A teenager convicted in the death of a Seattle street musician known as Tuba Man is now suspected of killing another man in a Bellevue, Wash., bar, police say.

Ja'mari Alexander-Alan Jones, 19, is wanted in the early Monday shooting at the Mirror Lounge at Munchbar that claimed the life of a 30-year-old man and left another man wounded, The Seattle Times reported. The bar was packed with about 600 people, including several members of the Seattle Seahawks, when a gunman fired about five shots.

The names of the victims had not been released.

Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll said none of his players was in the part of the bar where the shooting occurred.

Jones was one of three teens sentenced to juvenile detention in 2009 after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the beating death of Ed "Tuba Man" McMichael, 53. The musician was beaten during an October 2008 robbery and later died of his injuries.
