Washington is the cousin of Kimani Washington, who is currently being held on $500,000 cash bail on charges stemming from the September 28 shooting deaths of Levaughn Washum-Garrison, Simba Martin, Eyanna Flonory, and her two-year-old son, Amanihotep Smith on Woolson Street.

Dwayne Moore has also been charged in the shootings. He is being held without bail.

A fifth victim remains in critical condition.
