You’d have to dig a bit to find this, so we thought we’d save you the hassle and post this very interesting Comment from an apparent nephew of Ben Laumea, the father of six who was tragically shot and killed at the MVP Sports Bar in Burien last Sunday morning:

I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY PPL JUS WANT TO DO THINGS LIKE THAT. MY UNKO WAS A GREAT MAN WITH A BIG HEART…HE WAS THE BABYY IN THE FAMILY.

I LOVE YOU FOREVER UNTIL THAT DAY WE MEET AGAIN. IA MANUIA LOU MAGALA. I LOVE YOU UNKO B……………………..

UPDATE (8pm 5/7/08):

Bruce Sivao “Monk” Matagi, 27, of Auburn, was charged by King County prosecutors with first-degree murder for the shooting death of Laumea.

If convicted, the sentence range is 26 to 33 years in prison.

Matagi is being held in the King County Jail on $3 million bail.

He is scheduled to be arraigned May 15 at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent.

Investigators say Laumea was shot once in the head with an AK-47 early Sunday at the MVP Sports Bar, where he used to work.

Witnesses say he was attempting to stop Matagi, who came into the bar and started shooting at the ceiling, allegedly with an AK-47.
