    Heard 9 shots last night. 3 then another 6 in rapid succession. Definitely a semi-automatic.

      Thanks. We weren’t able to go to this scene in person so we have less on it than the South Delridge incident earlier in the evening, but I’ll be hoping to get more info from police tomorrow. – TR

      The shots could have just as easily been fired from a revolver. Most revolvers hold six rounds. A shooter could easily fire off his last three rounds and quickly reload another six rounds.

        Did you hear the shots Andy. We did. The shooter must’ve been The Flash to reload a revolver that quickly. So, I guess the SPD should be looking for a guy in a red spandex suit. But seriously don’t care what kind of gun it was, we just want the SOB caught! Those nine bullets landed somewhere and could’ve seriously injured, or killed, someone or caused property damage.

        Not that it really matters, but it seems unlikely since they found casings as a revolver retains theirs, unless they found 3 casings. 

        And it would seem highly unlikely had someone had a revolver that it would be partially loaded as in your hypothesis, if they had the extra six rounds. 

        It would most likely be fully loaded with 6 rounds and then partially loaded with the last 3.

    Would really be interested in knowing if there are any updates on this incident (and the other shots fired on same day).

      Ditto. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, WSB!

Sorry, comment time is over.
