Law enforcement authorities on Wednesday asked for the public’s help to find a murder convict who was one of five incarcerated teens who fled from confinement at Echo Glen Children’s Center.
The King County Sheriff’s Office said the teens, who range in ages from 14 to 17, escaped the center around 7:45 a.m. after they allegedly assaulted a guard before fleeing in a blue 2018 Ford Fusion.
Timothy Hernandez-Ebanks, 15, had the most serious charge after he was convicted in 2021 for first-degree murder and unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with a slaying that occurred in southwest King County.
Authorities did not identify the other escapees but did release information about Hernandez-Ebanks out of a “concern for the safety and well being of the public.”
Investigators said they were trying to determine how the teens escaped and had not ruled out the possibility that they had help from the inside.
According to court documents, Timothy Hernandez-Ebanks was convicted for his admitted slaying of Hassan Ali Hassan, 35, who was fatally shot on April 21, 2020 as he was walking from work to his home in Burien
According to court documents, the convicted murderer followed his target, whom he did not know, and shot him in the back of the head, telling investigators that he “just felt like doing it.”
The victim had immigrated to the U.S. in 2007 from Somalia and worked two jobs on many occasions to support his family.
As investigators sought to find the five escapees, it was not clear if the five teens were still together or if they have gone their separate ways.
According to the sheriff’s office, the male suspects could be driving a 2018 gray Ford Fusion with a WA license 27545E that was also taken during the escape.
Anyone with information was asked to call 911 or the King County Sheriff’s non-emergency number at 206-296-3311.
