WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Late-night gunfire

ORIGINAL THURSDAY NIGHT REPORT: A resident along 16th SW near SW Othello texted us to say they heard “gunshots … about 6 or 10 in a row, super loud” a short time ago. Police are in the area now and have just told dispatch that they’ve located a casing. No word of any injuries so far.

ADDED FRIDAY: SPD’s preliminary incident summary says no witnesses could be found, just “broken glass from a vehicle and evidence of a shooting were recovered from the street in the 7300 block of 16 Ave SW.”

    Lots of sirens down on Alki last night around 8pm.  Anyone know what was going on?

      Yes, I looked that up last night for someone who texted to ask. Medical response at a residence on 59th, extra personnel needed because CPR was involved. – TR
