Three arrested in Central Area shooting

I’m blatantly lifting this from the Times.

Seattle police on Friday arrested three people in connection with the shooting of a 19-year-old man in the Central Area.

Police found the victim after responding to a 911 call at 3:39 p.m. The caller said several teenagers were taking refuge from a gunman by hiding in a Red Apple Market on South Jackson Street.

As police arrived, they heard gunshots in the distance and discovered the 19-year-old two or three blocks away, in the 500 block of 25th Avenue South, said Seattle police spokesman Mark Jamieson. The victim’s injury was not believed to be life threatening.

Told the assailants were in a silver Cadillac, police spotted the car soon after at Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Graham Street, Jamieson said. Officers pulled the car over and found four people inside.

All four were questioned at the East Precinct. Police later searched a residence in the 2500 block of South Norman Street and found two handguns believed to have been used in the shooting, Jamieson said.

Three of the four people were arrested on investigation of assault, Jamieson said. Two — men ages 20 and 18 — were booked into the King County Jail and the third, a 17-year-old male, was being processed as a juvenile.

The police department’s gang unit is investigating.
