    Second female to be shot in a matter of days . Seems odd to me.

    Any evidence or suspicion that this is connected to Friday’s shooting?

      All I have so far are the basics above.

    As of ~10 minutes ago, Holden still isn’t open, had to re-route south coming from the freeway.

    Have they caught the shooter?

      No updates from police so far. I’ll be requesting the report tomorrow if nothing further emerges today.

    Any word on motive? Was this a random shooting or a domestic dispute? Is the victim local to that area?

    Thank you for the update! I’m also following the last two shootings w/woman victims as I live in the same neighborhood. Hope SPD is making some progress and will share more soon! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
