FIRST REPORT, 11:46 PM: From the “in case you were wondering” file – Sheila and Michelle both messaged us to ask about possible gunshots around 9 pm, audible from Delridge/High Point, roughly the 6000 block or southward. Definitely no shooting victims anywhere, according to the comprehensive, real-time Seattle Fire 911 log (where you would invariably see a shooting noted as “assault with weapons”); we also checked with Southwest Precinct Lt. Alan Williams to see if officers had been sent to look into this. His reply: “We had officers check the area, but they found nothing.”
SECOND REPORT, 3:03 AM: Now we’re checking on multiple reports of gunfire during some kind of fight/argument in The Junction. One person tweeted that it happened in or near the 4800 block of California SW. And from another person via e-mail:
> Two guys, one girl, seemed to be in their 20’s, fighting on the sidewalk, one guy notably louder. Things settled for a minute, then got loud again, culminating in a bang around 2:30. Shortly thereafter, police showed up. Part of the conversation I heard was that one guy pulled a gun, fired it in the air, and stormed off. Since then, at least four police cars have been cruising around, and things have quieted down.
Again in this case, no related medic calls on the SFD log. If we find out anything from police, we’ll add it.
