WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Gunfire hits home, cars

(WSB photo)

7:23 PM: Thanks for the tips. Police are investigating gunfire around 6 pm at 30th and Graham in High Point. No injuries reported, but police confirmed to us at the scene that they found several casings at that intersection. One nearby resident told us by email that she heard several shots and then “two vehicles sped off” – described by her husband as a Mercedes and Mustang that “came back after a few minutes, but no more shots were fired, and they sped off again.” Police had the intersection taped off for a while so they could check for evidence, but have since removed the tape, and the street’s back open.

8:49 PM: Additional information from police – bullets hit a parked car, an occupied car, and a home, where one “round penetrated the walls, narrowly missing an infant and two adults.” No one was hurt; no suspect/vehicle descriptions.

    No one was hurt —- this time! Leave your guns locked away in your house! You don’t need a gun to resolve your squabbles and risk hurting or killing people. Talk it out to resolve your issues and leave the guns out of your talk.

    Hard to imagine that one could be sitting in their home and suddenly hit by a stray bullet!

    This is daytime!  People out walking dogs etc. this could have been a tragedy.

    I’d guess the family in the house and the person in the occupied car are psychologically hurt forever.   There are things within your control that you do stupidly, and then there are stupid things that others do that can kill you.

    Yup, I was one of those people walking my dog a block away. Scary and frankly getting so very old. :(

    Have they caught the guy or should I still hide until stray bullets aren’t a threat?

    I wish we had prosecutors that  were courageous enough to charge and try those who violate gun laws.

    I wish we had Judges courageous enough to sentence those who violate gun laws and are found guilty, to lengthy sentences .

    Until we do, you can pass all the Gun Control Laws you want and they will do no good. Criminals do NOT obey laws, esp. when there are NO ramifications to breaking those laws!!!

    Sure are a lot of Law & Order commenters here these days

      Yeah, Marc. It’s almost as if people don’t want people shooting randomly in the middle of neighborhoods… 

Sorry, comment time is over.
