WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Man shot in North Delridge

12:17 AM: Police are investigatng a reported shooting at Delridge/Findlay. One man is reported wounded, “shot in the back” per SFD dispatch. No suspect description yet except “male in a red shirt.” Updates to come.

12:26 AM: Police believe the shooting happened in front of the Shell station (which is closed for the night); they told dispatch they’ve found a casing. They’re also closing Delridge Way at the scene.

12:34 AM: The victim, a 20-year-old man, is being taken to Harborview by SFD medics. Police, meantime, now believe they’re looking for two suspects; a K-9 team is helping search.

12:47 AM: If you live in the area, you’ll hear police PA announcements and siren “chirping,” which is meant as a warning to possibly hiding suspect(s) that they’re nearby with a dog.

1:34 AM: So far, no success. Meantime, the street is open again.

    Police are thoroughly searching the construction site on 25th and Brandon with the K-9 unit. I awoke to the dog barking.

      They mentioned that. No luck, but that’s where the K-9 trail led them at some point.

    This is summer-level violence in winter. Very sad.

    Hm. Maybe if they didn’t announce so loudly and have a chirping warning noise of a dog search then the people may actually be caught without being givens a heads up lol

    Could you please see if you could find out any more about this situation? It is such a sad state of events to happen. As it is I am disabled and hate to go outside because I am afraid of what could happen. My heart for this young man who got shot in the back. Is sad. Rhoda
