We received a few questions about what sounded like gunfire early this morning, heard in the 36th SW/SW Dawson and Fauntleroy/Edmunds areas. No injury reports on the SFD log, but Tweets by Beat showed a “property destruction” report this morning. When we followed up for details, Seattle Police confirmed evidence of gunfire was found in the 5000 block of 37th Avenue SW: “Officers arrived on scene and located … a bullet hole to the back hatch of an SUV. No other damage or evidence was located.”

    We now have a case number for the driveby shootings that
    many of you heard on 37th Ave SW between Hudson and Dawson on the
    evening of April 2 around 11:14pm-ish. Case number is 2019-117345. Video shows 2
    cars driving south on 37th and the sounds of 2 sets of gunshots  and the cars on the
    video continued south on 37
    th so there could be more damage in other
    blocks or nearby areas.
    If you
    have any video from around that time, information or damage that might be
    connected to this incident please report it to the police and reference the
    case number. There was also a Van window shot out on 36th Ave SW
    near Dawson that same evening that is probably related. Police searched for casings on 37th and search on Dawson at 36th Ave SW as well.
