SEATTLE —

A bail hearing was held Saturday afternoon for the suspect in Friday’s Green Lake shooting.

Carolyn Piksa, 46, waived her appearance in court, which was held at the King County Jail.

According to the King County Prosecutor’s Office, the court found probable cause for first-degree assault and set bail at $1 million.

On Friday afternoon, 70-year-old Bill Keller was shot in the chest at a Seattle Parks and Recreation Department office in Green Lake. Keller is currently in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center.

Authorities identified Piksa as a suspect in the shooting.

According to police, Piksa later confronted an employee at another Seattle Parks and Recreation office in North Seattle, where she brandished a gun and left.

Police later found Piksa at a Burien home and arrested her. She was booked into the King County Jail.

There will be a second court appearance on March 13, which is the deadline for a charging decision.
