UPDATE: Shooting investigation in South Delridge

2:19 PM: Police are investigating a shooting in the 9000 block of 18th SW. They report “one male victim injured.” More as we get it.

2:34 PM: Police tell us at the scene that the victim’s injuries are not life-threatening. The shooting was the result of a robbery somewhere nearby – the victim made it to a construction site and called for help.

3:31 PM: Still no one in custody. No description made public, either.

3:55 PM: A bit more info from SPD: They say the victim is 24 years old and was shot while “delivering an item sold on a secondhand goods website.”

    Two helicopters, I’m assuming news?

    That would probably explain the KIRO 7 helicopter hovering around. Except it’s over more like the 9000 block of 15th SW.

    Thank you for being on top of things as usual WSB! Heard the helicopter and police and wondered. I wonder if related to the alley shooting during Sealth football game the other week.

    We just drove thru there and five cops with ruffles drawn and a dog sniffing.   It was like a scene from a movie. Crazy!!!

    Is this the same burglar that kicked in my front door last week, Gatewood area, during the same time of day!?

      Probably. Most definitely maybe? Burglars typically keep the same hours so you might be on to something.

    We definitely need to watch out there a lot of crazy-nest out there.

    It was an armed robbery, not a burglary. I hope the victim recovers fully and the police catch the shooter before he hurts someone else

    The suspect is a black male with red tennis shoes, black jacket and black beanie and blue jeans. He was meeting his victim to buy a Mac Pro through “Let Go app”., at an apartment building. The victim was shot in the back and rushed to HMC but will recover. Is a Mac Pro worth a murder charge? Apparently it is to this wanted suspect.

      How do you know this information?

    My house on 3200 of SW Barton STREET was burglarized today. Sometime before 2:45pm.

      Sorry to hear that. If you email us (any items you want people to watch for, for example? did anyone see a suspect or vehicle?) westseattleblog@gmail.com – we can report it separately in Crime Watch.- TR
