WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Police search after gun incident in North Delridge

(WSB photos, added 8:08 pm)

7:22 PM: Thanks for the texts. The big police response in North Delridge (and beyond) has to do with a search for a suspect and at least one of two vehicles reported to be involved in some kind of incident at Delridge and Findlay. The vehicles were described as a blue SUV and a Mustang. This is from the scanner – we don’t know yet what started all this but at some point along the way, one of the drivers was reported to be trying to run over officers. More as we get it.

7:48 PM: The search for one suspect who reportedly bolted toward the Longfellow Creek greenbelt continues, with K-9. (Other areas are being searched too.) The Mustang is being towed from the gas station on Delridge north of Findlay.

We just talked with police, who say the suspect they’re seeking was associated with the Mustang and is being impounded because there might be a gun in it. And that, they tell us, is how this started – a gun-flashing incident involving a confrontation between people in the 2 cars. No gunfire or injuries reported.

    Saw a SUV vehicle flying down south Delridge at about 80 mph and getting on eastbound west Seattle bridge at least 3 police vehicles in chase.

    Is the mayor and city council going to get on the gang problem in Seattle anytime soon?

      Is this a rhetorical question?  Too busy being activists and not managing the city issues!

      They looked more like high rolling drug dealers or thiefs than gang bangers, to mee atleast. I grew up on delrigde so it’s easy to spot

    There might be a gun in it? Just look. It’s not like it’s a puzzle.

      Search warrant needed.

        I would think that with everything that lead up to the car being abandoned, the police would have enough PC to search the car without needing a signed warrant from a judge.

    There were 3 cars when I saw them at super24 on delridge causing traffic to stop. 1 blue Tahoe with gigantic black rims. The guy in the muatang, and another in a brand new infinity hatchback, glad I didn’t yell at them like I wanted too… When I saw them it must have been right before they started getting into thier trouble. All 3 were racing by the school on delridge only a few feet apart cutting off other drivers. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
