Here’s an update on the south-end shooting we covered on the scanner last night. A man was shot in the arm down in south Seattle at Rainier & Austin. A witness got a good description of the vehicle which was spotted by police heading northbound on Rainier and stopped here in the CD at 14th & Main. A gun was recovered, the 16 year-old shooting suspect arrested, and the four other occupants of the vehicle were interviewed and released.
Here’s the details from the SPD blog:
At approximately 1045 p.m., officers spotted the vehicle in the area of 14th Avenue and S. Main St. It was occupied by 5 individuals and a gun was seen wedged between the center console. Officers were able to arrest all 5 individuals and the vehicle was impounded.
The victim was treated on scene and transported to Harborview with non- life threatening injuries. The Gang Unit took over the investigation and called CSI to process the scene for evidence.
The suspect a male 16-years-old, was booked into Youth Service Center for Investigation of Assault. The other 4 occupants of the vehicle were investigated and released.
