WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Gunfire reports investigated

Making note again this early morning of multiple reports to 911 of suspected gunfire, and we heard directly from one of the people who reported it. She said she heard it a few minutes before midnight, south of 13th/14th/Henderson. Other areas that were mentioned as police were dispatched included 9th/Roxbury, 800 block of SW Trenton, 9200 block of 12th. We haven’t heard whether evidence of gunfire was found.

    The gunshots woke me up. I’m at 17th & Barton – they sounded a bit of a distance away to the south. 5-6 shots in quick succession.

    could this be related:  http://komonews.com/news/local/fight-turns-deadly-as-woman-fatally-shoots-another-woman-in-white-center ?  I know its a bit further south than reported.

      No. We have that on our White Center site. Much farther south and about an hour later.

    I called in to 911 around 2:40am with what sounded like 5 gunshots from the direction of Me-Kwa-Mooks Park. It woke me up.

      I live near Morgan Junction and also awoke at 2:40am to what I thought were fireworks, but could have been gunshots.

      Glad someone commented on this! Live near beach drive/mee-kwa. Wasn’t sure if I was dreaming. Definitely sounded like gunshots.

    Just heard shots in North Admiral either from Hamilton Viewpoint or down on Harbor Drive. No sirens followed.  A single, followed by two sets of multiple. What is going on?!

      We were driving up from Harbor just ten minutes ago and passed a car that backfired – that was just one burst, though. Please call 911 if you haven’t already, as they appreciate getting as many reports as possible.

Sorry, comment time is over.
