Two notes in Crime Watch this midday:

1ST AVENUE S. BRIDGE SHOOTING: Reported this morning via SPD Blotter:

Gang Unit Detectives are investigating after a man was shot in the leg while driving over the 1st Avenue South bridge.

Officers were approached by an 18-year-old man in the 2600 block of South Holly Street at 1:20 a.m. Friday where he showed them a gunshot wound to his calf. The victim said he had been driving when he heard several shots and a single round entered the vehicle through the driver’s side door striking him in the leg. The victim was unable to provide any suspect description to officers.

Seattle Fire Department Medics transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Gang Unit Detectives are now investigating and are asking anyone with information to please call the tip line at 206-233-5000.

No indication if there’s any suspected link to earlier shootings reported further south on Highway 509.

CAR PROWLER ON CAMERA: The video and report are from Alex in Sunrise Heights:

We live near 32nd and Kenyon and have had our car prowled twice in the last couple weeks; one happened early at 930 pm. Both of these happened in our alley way. Wanted to … warn people and remind them to be safe and be on the lookout!

    My friend in crime prevention in another town once told me that lights just help the criminals see what they are doing.

    That girl looks suspiciously familiar. I’m about 2 miles south.

Sorry, comment time is over.
