WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: House shot at; guns seized; hit-run clues sought

Three reports in West Seattle Crime Watch:

HOUSE SHOT AT: Police investigated a reported drive-by shooting in the 5600 block of 23rd SW. A resident said someone shot at the house and then drove away. No one hit/hurt.

GGUNS SEIZED: Police included these photos with a report of officers seizing the two guns when arresting a man:

This happened around quarter past 5 this evening near Delridge and Findlay. The preliminary police summary says four people were arguing “over a past assault.” A woman, “in an effort to defend her son, began bragging about owning a firearm.” A man said he owned one too. She expressed doubt. He went to his car and brought out one of the guns, “causing the victim to feel intimidated.” She called 911. They searched his vehicle and “recovered two semi-automatic handguns and their respective magazines loaded with ammunition.” The 31-year-old suspect was booked into King County Jail for investigation of unlawful use of a weapon.

HIT-RUN: From Rose:

My car was parked outside Luna apartments, 2745 California Ave near PCC, around 2:30 pm today and someone smashed the hood of my car – there was blue and white paint on the hood. I was wondering … if anyone saw anything.

    WSB,others. What % of guns taken from “bad guys/gals” had  originally been  taken from  a private residence during a robbery?

    Wonder if the person who smashed and grabbed into the running shop with the sign from Luna park apts possible also did this to the car.

      Time lag. The hit-run was from yesterday. The burglary was overnight.

    That is a brand new Walther PDP (Performance Duty Pistol) on the right. Walther just released that pistol last year.

    We were at that Delridge and Findlay picking up our child (there are 2 daycares at that block) when we saw the police pull up at the market. Now we know what the sirens are about. Thanks SPD for being on the scene. Shudder to think about the loaded guns so near the daycares. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
