UPDATE: Police checking out possible gunshots in North Delridge

MIDNIGHT: Via scanner: Police are checking out multiple reports of possible gunshots heard in North Delridge. They haven’t found any evidence of gunfire yet (shell casings or property damage). If you heard them but hadn’t called 911, please do, because that helps them zero in on what might have happened and where.

12:41 AM: Still no indication any evidence was found. If you spot anything in the morning, call it in.

TRENDS: Last week’s SPD SeaStat citywide briefing slide deck included a map of where gunfire was confirmed in the previous four weeks. It shows five incidents in the SW Precinct – including South Park – between January 19th and February 15th. (That cutoff date was just before last week’s two incidents in Highland Park, outside the 7-11 on February 16th and outside a house in the 7900 block of 16th SW on February 18th.)

    Around 10:45 or 11 p.m. I may have heard 1 gunshot now that I see this post; I wasn’t sure if that was what I heard but these reports make me reconsider if I should have still called in.

    Intersection of Delridge and Puget

    I heard two gun shots followed by five more in quick sucsesstion. It sounded close so I called 911 to report the direction the sounds were coming from. The 911 operator said there were other calls coming in about it.

      @David can you give a general location of cross streets?

    What is the deal? It seems West Seattle is losing its mind lately with gun shots

Sorry, comment time is over.
