WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Another gunfire investigation

10:54 PM: Second case today of confirmed gunfire: This time in North Delridge, on SW Brandon just east of 29th [vicinity map]. Officers just told dispatch they’ve found shell casings there, after multiple 911 callers in the area reported hearing shots a short time ago. No injuries or property damage reported so far; no witnesses, either, so there’s no word so far of shooter or (potential) vehicle description.

11:06 PM: Officers report they’ve “collected nine 9-millimeter casings.”

    It was at 10:41. I called it in ~30 seconds after the last shot. This is twice in the same area within a few months. Why?

      We know why. It’s called Republican Backed Gun Violence.  As long as we keep shooting each other Republicans keep getting paid. There’s no mystery.

        I also called it in. Yesterday was the 2nd night in a row I’ve woken up to gun fire. I’ve never had to deal with this bs back home in Chicago..at least where I’ve lived. Those gun shots sounded really close to my window.

        Please, do elaborate!

        It’s odd to me that someone could post this on a community forum. At best it’s baseless and at worst it’s insane.

        100% with you on why there are so many guns and so little gun control. I’m more wondering wtf the appeal is in unloading a magazine next to a green belt. Like my immediate thought is asshole kids but where are they getting ammunition? If we can’t control guns can we at least make ammunition prohibitively expensive? (I know the answer is no but I’m so sick of this shit.)

      Why?  Because kids and thugs think it’s cool to run around with guns and shoot things and people. I would venture to guess that many of these people have been caught doing something illegal already, but we’re never prosecuted.  If you commit a crime with a gun or are found to have a gun when it is illegal for you to do so, you should be incarcerated.  The punishment needs to be a deterrent.  And punishment needs to be enforced regardless of the demographics of the perpetrator.

        Your generation and demographic protested against any sort of gun control in this country. And even encouraged gun ownership citing “it’s safer when everyone is armed!” And now you’re outraged at the youth for having easy access to firearms and using them. This isn’t a “Seattle isn’t prosecuting criminals problem” this is a country wide epidemic in which people still refuse to do anything about. Make it make sense 🤷‍♂️

          Perhaps if you studied department of justice statistics you’d enjoy a more accurate understanding of what is happening, and where?

  • Joan June 16, 2024 (1:56 pm)

    Seems to keep happening in the same area. Regular or random police presence would be appreciated.

      I agree.  When was the last time you saw a squad car in West Seattle?

        Home Depot, Starbucks.

Sorry, comment time is over.
