UPDATE: ‘Scenes of violence’ response in High Point

5:43 PM: Another major emergency response, this time in High Point, near 32nd/Juneau. A 24-year-old man is reported to have suffered a gunshot wound inside a home. Police are trying to sort out the circumstances, while SFD tends to the victim. (The call classification “scenes of violence” applies generally to injuries or deaths involving a weapon.)

5:58 PM: The wounded man is being taken to Harborview Medical Center.

6:05 PM: We went over to check, as there was early radio communication that this might have been self-inflicted; officers on the scene are not commenting but they’re wrapping up, so thus far it’s not being treated as a crime scene.

    Was it really inside the home, because we swear we heard a gun shot (2 in fact) loud enough to be outside.

      Yeah it was inside the home. We are the next door neighbors and heard it too. Just bc it was loud doesn’t mean it was outside.

    Oh I am so sorry for everyone involved- family, neighbors and especially the young person. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
