(Added: WSB photo)

7:22 PM: A Seattle Fire “scenes of violence” response is headed to 30th/Roxbury after a report of gunfire, possibly a drive-by shooting that left cars damaged too. One person is reported injured. The Guardian One helicopter may be joining the search. More to come.

7:29 PM: Though SPD and SFD are assisting, most of this is unfolding on the county side of Roxbury. The vehicle description so far: Black Charger, last seen southbound on 30th. Guardian One is arriving in the area.

7:39 PM: Deputies have told dispatch that witnesses said two other people were shot but left the scene to go directly to a hospital. The victim who was at the scene when SFD medics arrived is being taken to Harborview. … At the scene, we’re told only that the victim is male. Meantime, Guardian One has moved on, as the shooter is believed to be long gone.

8 PM: Deputies tell us this all happened at the gas station. We’re checking on the victim’s condition; haven’t heard anything further about other possible victims. Traffic at the scene is back to normal now that the initially sizable SFD response has left.

8:19 PM: SFD spokesperson David Cuerpo tells WSB the victim taken to the hospital by their medics is 18 and was transported in stable condition.

ADDED 12:29 PM FRIDAY: KCSO spokesperson Sgt. Tim Meyer tells WSB that the investigation continues and “I am not aware of additional victims and know of no arrests.”

      First word of this was somebody calling in that they heard gunfire from 35th/102nd. That was before they discovered someone actually saw the shooting near 30th/Roxbury, and the victim turned up at the gas station.

    I live a few blocks away. Multiple guns sounded at once. Definitely not a single person involved.

    My husband was at Ross earlier and saw people in a black charger arguing with someone in another car. Wonder if it is the same car???

    I was taking out the garbage. I hear 1 pop then a second later it sounded like a full on gunfight happened

    I’ve been shot at. Pistol whipped. And mugged in that same area (this is nothing new). Hopefully they actually catch the people that did it

    I drove by the scene just after it happened, going to get gas at Safeway took a right on 28th and the black charger was sitting at the stop sign on 28th and Roxbury. It has 396 on the Front quarter panels. This was about 715ish.

      Give the description to the cops

    • Ayayronbalakay March 11, 2021 (8:35 pm)

      You should call the police and tell them that. That’s a Daytona 396 Charger. It’s kinda rare actually. Might narrow things down alot.

    Our area seems to be getting worse. Can’t even feel safe going for a walk. Sigh…

  • ~Hockeywitch~ March 11, 2021 (8:17 pm)

    That explains the Medic Unit heading North on 35th with a Police officer tailing close behind with Lights and Sirens… Hope the injured will be okay and hope the shooter(s) will be caught.

    People need to leave their guns at home! If you get into an argument in public you don’t need your gun! and potentially injure or kill people you know or don’t know.  Be a human without needing to gun and run.

    Gun sales need to stop.

    Government should offer an incentive program to pay folks to turn in their guns. A worthwhile amount for each gun. 

    Would be interesting to hear from folks who own a gun, how much would you give yours up for?

    Hopefully those who would most need the money and who also might get involved in criminal activity would opt for this. At the same time, they could be offered to connect with various support services, like work/career help, health care/rehab programs, etc.

    Sure some gun owners, those with more financial resources, wouldn’t give theirs up, but I think this would be a minority.

    Pass strict laws and big penalties for those who are found to carry a gun or commit a crime with a gun.

    This could be an ongoing program, which hopefully over the course of years would greatly reduce the amount of guns out there, while also helping people who need some guidance.
