Alki police search: Reports of shots fired into the air

Just got a tip about shots fired in Alki/60th vicinity a short time ago – no medic calls but scanner says police are looking for one or possibly more people “firing rounds” – one scanner description was “whitish color 2 door coupe, Maserati, white male, 20s, short blonde hair, cranking rounds off in the air” – haven’t heard the other potential description. Will update if/when we hear more; let us know if you’re in the area and seeing/hearing anything. 11:14 PM UPDATE: In comments, our original tipster says there’s word a suspect was stopped at the Harbor Ave. 7-11.

    SPD caught up with suspect at 7-11 on Harbor Ave and was already positively identified by witness.

    We live at 60th & Alki and saw the event from our balcony. Police are taking statements now. WSB – I texted you from the 253 number and can provide details after police leave.

    thanks, hard to tell from the scanner; the description we posted above was described as a possible second suspect. glad to hear about a quick stop.

    Gives me shivers – my daughter attends Alki Elem. and is there right now. I realize that this was a nighttime activity, but it still gives me chills. The school is just a block away!
