CRIME WATCH FOLLOWUP: Gunshot victim turns up at hospital

The gunshots heard near 30th/Roxbury early Saturday had a victim. There was no “assault with weapons” response because no one was found at the scene, but thanks to a tip from Tim, we were able to follow up today, and confirmed with King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West that a shooting victim showed up at Highline Hospital around 1:30 am Saturday. Sgt. West says, “He had multiple gunshot wounds. He had been driven to the hospital by a friend. The victim was later transferred to Harborview and is in serious but stable condition. He is a 30-year-old Seattle man. The shooting appears to have occurred somewhere near SW Roxbury and 30th Ave SW. Just prior to the victim showing up at Highline Hospital, SPD received numerous 911 calls of gunshots being heard in the area.” She says they don’t have any information about the circumstances of the shooting, or any description of the person(s) who did it. If you have any information that could help with the investigation, call 911.

    Did you mean the one late last night, that you reported was at 14th & Roxbury? Or are these two separate incidents?

      Separate incidents. We had nothing previously on this one because nobody contacted us and (our failsafe) the SFD real-time 911 had nothing since there was no victim reported at the scene. But Tim mentioned later hearing about a gunshot victim showing up at Highline Hospital. No way for us to check on that until today, so we did, and this is the result. – TR

      Hi – this is all we’re likely to get. At this point it appears to be a KCSO case, though the shots were heard on both sides of the city-county line, but if you have questions about anything that’s happened lately or ongoing concerns, tonight is your perfect chance to bring them directly to SPD at the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting (7 pm at the precinct, 2300 SW Webster). – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
