WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Early-morning gunfire

2:11 PM: Thanks to Priya for the tip. Police confirm early-morning gunfire on Alki. The call came in just before 5:30 am. They found gunfire evidence “along the street” in the 2600 block of Alki Avenue SW. The person who reported it said they were out walking, and saw a drive firing “four to six shots in the air” while pulling out of a parking space and heading west. No injuries reported and no property damage found; the summary does not include a description of the vehicle (we’re asking). If you have any information, the incident # is 22-279903.

4:20 PM: Police say the vehicle was described as a blue Nissan but the witness did not have a description of the driver.

    Seems to be a lot of this going on.  A few weeks ago this happened in front of a friends house on a dead-end street.  In that case he found the shell casing and it was for a special prop gun that fires blanks.  Is there any followup detail on these shootings to see if more blanks are being used?  I’m struggling to understand why anyone does this.

      They collect the evidence to compare and see if the same gun(s) might have been used in multiple incidents. I’ve never heard of blanks being found, but then again, police don’t always provide the description of the evidence (as in this case).

    Heard these and called the cops from a nearby residence. Sucks to know they just wanted to wake us up for no reason. Glad to know no one was hurt.

    Obviously these boys don’t have anything going for themselves except enlarged ego boosts from flexing firearms. How about go get an education and be somebody.. Besides if you get caught your going to go to jail for a long time idiots. Think about it nobody cares about how cool you think you are trying to be a badass. And in jail they really don’t care they will mess you up

    I’ve got one thing to say to you shooters….IT SUCKS TO BE YOU!!!   You will get popped and don’t come a cryin to us that the world is picking on you.  Really,  Alki @ 5 in the morning?  What the racoons scare you?  Good thing you can move so fast…you’ll need to.  See ya at harborview soon.  Maybe you’ll get lucky and make my day.  Just remember to head for the light.

Sorry, comment time is over.
