About the early-morning police search in Highland Park, Puget Ridge

Logwatchers may have noticed a “scenes of violence” callout just before 3 am. Here’s the police summary of what that was about:

On 7-14-21 at about 0250 hours, an unknown male entered a business in the 1600 block of SW Holden St and requested the employee call 911 because he had accidentally shot himself. The subject then fled the business, got into his vehicle, and fled the area. Responding officers observed the vehicle leaving and followed it to the area of 17 Ave SW / SW Graham St, where the subject parked the vehicle and fled into the greenbelt area. An extensive area check was conducted, but the subject was not located. A handgun was observed inside the locked vehicle, which was impounded to the processing room.

    If he’s injured enough to urge a stranger to call 911 I hope SPD/SFD didn’t stop looking for him(?).

    interesting that he flees and makes it very difficult to follow him if he is indeed shot. Something is off in this story and makes me wonder if he just likes getting the cops chasing a ghost.
