WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Gunfire investigation

After a report of possible gunfire just after 9 pm last night, police found “evidence of a shooting” in the 2600 block of SW Cambridge [map]. According to the preliminary SPD summary, officers originally responded to “shots heard” reports from 27th/Roxbury. They were told a “black sedan” had left the scene, possibly related to the gunfire. The summary continues, saying police found “vehicle tracks … along with a fluid spill that led them from the scene to several blocks away where a Ford Crown Victoria (painted flat black) had come to a stop. Upon seeing a patrol car, this vehicle fled from officers at a high rate of speed.” At that time, officers had yet to find the gunfire evidence, but did a while later. No injuries were reported.

    Hmm, for the last couple weeks there has been a flat black Crown Victoria that absolutely screams up and down 26th Ave SW between Roxbury and 106th. It has gotten to the point that I can ID it by the sound before it flies by my house at what has to be 50+ miles per hour. I always half expect that they’re being chased by someone… I wonder if it’s the same car?

    I have seen a similar looking big old Ford, driving too fast, in the same area described by RickB! Kind of a banged up car with an odd flat black paint job that almost looks ‘home made’?

Sorry, comment time is over.
