UPDATE: Shooting victim found at Delridge apartment complex

2:54 AM: Police are investigating a shooting, complicated by the fact the victim wasn’t shot at the location where he was found. That location is the Longfellow Creek Apartments (5915 Delridge Way SW), where both SPD and SFD are converging right now. The 28-year-old victim is reported to have (update) two gunshot wounds, back and shoulder, and is reported – according to police-radio communication – to not be telling police where the shooting happened. He’s been taken to Harborview.

12:13 PM: SPD has just published an item about this on its blog-format blotter, and we’ve also obtained the report narrative. Still no arrest; police believe the victim, whose injuries are described as “non-life-threatening,” was dropped off at the apartment complex, where he apparently used to live.

  • Being shot and no cooperation? July 27, 2018 (2:22 pm)

    Perhaps I misread this or maybe I just live in a different world?  One might think being shot twice would lead somebody to cooperate with the police. Ok. I’m not totally naive just finding it hard to muster the sympathy such an shooting should engender. Sad for me. Sad for the guy shot. Sad for us all? We can do better than this as a community.

      He may have been more in shock than uncooperative, as it looks in the report narrative written hours later: “I asked (victim) where he was when he got shot, he only kept responding with something like, “I got shot.” (He would) not answer any questions and just kept repeating that he got shot.”

        Fair enough. Could have been in shock. Hope he heals well and does best to help authorities investigate and prosecute.

          Could have also been high on drugs or have psychosis, I’ve witnessed this with a stabbing victim. If it was a case of non- cooperation though, if you can imagine, the retaliation can carry over to your loved ones.

      I live by Madison Middle School and was woke about 2:30AM to two pops that did not sound like fireworks.  I was waiting for sirens but nothing then fell back to sleep.  Wondering if these were gun shots I heard…
