WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Gunfire investigation, later arrest

ORIGINAL 1:23 AM REPORT: Police found evidence of gunfire – multiple shell casings – outside an apartment building in the 2400 block of SW Webster, just west of the Southwest Precinct and Home Depot, around quarter till 1 this morning. Several 911 callers reported hearing shots just after 12:30 am, and one pinpointed a specific building, according to dispatch, saying they believed the shots came from the second floor of that building. No injuries or property damage reported so far.

UPDATE, NOON: We heard another response to the same building a few hours later and just obtained information from SPD:

At about 2:27 a.m., police returned to the shots fired scene in the 2400 block of Southwest Webster Street where shell casings were found. A new 911 call had been made at the apartment building. Officers contacted people in a unit. They found a man and woman with injuries. Police developed probable cause and arrested the man for domestic violence felony harassment. Officers obtained a search warrant and recovered a handgun. The 23-year-old man was booked into the King County Jail.

    It happened blocks from the precinct (you know the one you can’t walk into as a member of the general public?) and even then they won’t figure anything out.

      Actually, they did. See update above.

    Did they match the gun to the shells that were found?

    Oh wow! I live in the apartments next door and had just parked and was outside, walking through the lot to my door when the shots were fired. A car was leaving at the same time and I had thought it was them. Scariest moment of my life so far being outside when that happened. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
