We hadn’t heard anything new about last Saturday’s shooting near 29th S. & S. Irving, so we called up the always helpful Mark Jamieson in the SPD media office.
The good news is that the victim’s wounds were not life threatening. Although police say that this was not a random shooting, they don’t believe that the victim was the intended target of the gunfire.
As for the investigation, according to Officer Jamieson it is “active and ongoing.” Officers recovered the car that was believed to be involved at 23rd & Aloha, and it was impounded as part of the investigation. No one is in custody yet, but police are working towards identifying the driver of that vehicle.
Although police sources couldn’t provide any additional details due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, we have been able to tie the suspect vehicle’s registration to an address in Madison Valley. We also know that that property was previously involved in a shooting in 2007. We can’t provide additional specifics until a suspect is arrested and tied directly to that location.
