West Seattle Blog… | WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 3 weekend incidents
Three incidents from the weekend – starting with two police summaries:
CONFIRMED SHOT: Just before 1 a.m. Sunday, officers verified a report of alleged gunshots heard near 27/Roxbury. Witnesses reported seeing people firing handguns “in the air” from two or three vehicles later “seen leaving the area at high speed”. Police found shell casings “along the length of the block”, but no injuries or property damage. If you have information, this incident is # 22-121619.
EARLY MORNING ASSAULT: Also early Sunday, just after 2 a.m., police responded to a reported assault in the 9000 block of Delridge Way SW. The victim told them he was taking out his trash when a man approached him, accused him of theft, then “wielded a gun.” The assailant then punched the victim several times, and an accomplice approached from behind to hit him on the head with a shoe. No description in summary, but incident is # 22-121685.
READER REPORT: Jessica says someone vandalized his car late Friday or early Saturday and wonders if anyone saw anything:
My Mazda CX-5 was locked from the driver side door to the gas tank. This happened either on Friday (May 13) evening or early Saturday. It happened behind Spiro’s on 44th (intersection with SW Hinds).
We don’t have the incident number on this one, but if you have any information, we can connect you.
PS In case you were wondering, SPD says there have been no arrests so far in last week’s major incidents in West Seattle, Thursday’s carjacking and shooting of Friday; we are working on a separate follow-up on the latter.
