Delridge shootings: Block Watch and more

From the eyewitness who first told us all about Sunday morning’s shooting, second one in a short stretch of Delridge in two days:

I talked to my neighbor today and she said that an officer paid her a visit, as a follow up to Sunday’s shooting. The officer told her that apparently there is a turf war going on between gangs in White Center and West Seattle. There seems to be a house or apt. around the 5600 block of Delridge that is bringing them down here. As of yet they are not exactly sure what address or people.

The officer said that Sunday’s shooting was in retaliation for Thursday’s shooting. They encouraged her to call the police if you see groups of 2 or more around the 5600 Block late at night that appear to be doing anything like through gang signs or getting loud etc. they hope that if they can bother them enough they will move on.

Also of note there will be a block watch meeting at the Delridge library on Wednesday August 1, 2007 @ 6:30 pm. I encourage everyone in the neighborhood to attend. This is our neighborhood and we don’t have to put up with this cr*p!

    THANK YOU for posting this – We will be at the meeting, and we’re bringing 3 of our 4 neighbors. I encourage others to come as well – it’d be nice to get to know folks in the neighborhood.

    Speaking of turf battles, I’ve heard that some gang is trying to claim Lincoln Park. Apparently a gang-related stabbing happened in that area a while back. This is third-hand knowledge. Any truth to this?

    For those residing in North Delridge please come to the North Delridge Neighborhood Council monthly meeting tomorrow, Wednesday August 1st, at the Delridge Library. Meeting starts at 6:30 and ends at 7:45. One of SPD’s finest, Community Police Team Officer Brian Ballew, will be present to fill in folks on the recent shootings. Relentless citizen pressure is, and will continue to make a difference. Never hesitate to call 911, because if you think it looks strange, I will almost guarantee that it is strange.
