West Seattle shooting survivors: New information on how to help

A comment just added to our original coverage of the Highland Park quadruple murder-suicide one week ago today has new information on how to help the family, so we’re spotlighting it here:

Thank you all for your kind words and compassion. The family is thankful and appreciative for all the support we’ve received from the community at large.

Several fundraisers are in the works and will be announced fairly soon. You can find the information/updates via Facebook event “The Phan/Harm Fundraiser”.

The family is in need of financial assistance for medical, funeral and other various expenses associated with the memorial services and ceremonies. If you are able and willing to contribute to the benevolent fund, please see the information below.

“The Thy Luellen Benevolent Account”
BECU Acct #: 3586082948

Please include both Account Name and Number when making out a check. Deposits can be made at any BECU location with a deposit box, or by mail (address below). BECU members can deposit funds electronically by calling (800) 233-2328.

PO BOX 34044
SEATTLE, WA 98124-1044

At this point, any amount helps.

As noted here earlier today, the Seattle Times (WSB partner) has spoken with the only family member who survived being shot (she’s out of the hospital); memorial services are set for this weekend.

    I am wondering what exactly is West Seattle It seems everytime there is a news happening in the South End of Seattle it is referred to as WEST SEATTLE which always confuses me because I never considered White Center or South Park or anything South of Roxbury or East of Delridge as West Seattle proper. Am I mistaken..When the news comes on I get nervous when they say things happened in WEST SEATTLE until they mention the address and it is nowhere near my home. Just curious why all incidents are referred to as WEST SEATTLE..I have family all over this state who call me worried that it is taking place near our home. Does anyone have an answer for me? thanx just curious

Sorry, comment time is over.
