WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Police search in south Admiral

9:40 PM: Thanks for the tips. Police are searching, with K9, in south Admiral, after what one neighbor tells us was gunfire, no known victim. They say it happened near 48th/Hanford and that a shell casing’s been found on the street. (Side note: We’ve heard a scanner mention of people standing around and watching. Be aware, that can get in the way of the K9’s suspect-tracking.)

9:54 PM: Still searching.

    I was there when it went off on the corner of 49th and Hanford. I tried to stop the police, but they hit their siren and took off south down 49th. It was shot from a white car, up in the air from a white Hyundai style hatchback which went South down the alley just east of 49th. A teenage girl got out of the car and walked down 49th to the south.

      Randy, what did the suspects look like ?

    We were on a walk and saw a cream color mid size SUV (I think it was a luxury brand, newer model) speeding through 48th and Lander. Kept walking down 48th and someone warned us about the incident from their home. No clue if it was related as we didn’t hear any gun shots before seeing the speeding car.

    I was out in the front yard about 4am the other morning to let my dog out and heard gunfire. I would guess it was by that old elementary school on Delridge from the direction I heard it from.

    Anyone who saw anything needs to call 911 and say you have information about a shooting last night in west seattle. They will direct the call to the most direct line and you give those details.  Usually they can link descriptions to other incidents.

Sorry, comment time is over.
