Just saw big police and ambulance response at 12th and Alder around 10:40ish, so I jumped on the scanner and heard that someone was shot in the hip? and that 2 suspects, 1 black male and 1 black female in a white Chevy Impala (2002ish) were last seen heading East on Jefferson.
Update by scott – from the SPD blotter:
On August 14th at approximately 10:30 a.m., Seattle Police officers responded to a call of shots fired and a victim down in the parking lot of the Youth Services Center. Officers responded along with Seattle Fire and located a male with a non life-threatening gunshot wound. The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center for his injury. Preliminary witness accounts indicate that there may have been two or three suspects who fled in a white Chevrolet from the scene following the shooting. Detectives from the Gang Unit, Homicide and CSI all responded to investigate and process the scene. This is an active and on-going investigation.
From Seattle U advisory:
Seattle Police information described that shots were fired outside of Juvenile
Hall at approximately 10:40 a.m. Early reports are that one person was shot,
and transported to a local hospital.
Seattle Police officers are looking for a mid to large size vehicle, possibly a
white Chevy Tahoe. The vehicle was witnessed leaving the scene immediately
after the shots were fired and was thought to be occupied by up to three
suspects. DPS officers are conducting safety emphasis patrols throughout
the south end of campus.
I love the red bandanna being thrown down, it give this a very nice American History X kind of touch.
You all are seeted here blogging about this. This is real life. Its no ones loss except for the real Black community. The SPD know the real and refuse to put a stop to it; as well they even aggravate it many times. We really need to police our own people, it’s simple. No one else really cares. Its looked upon as oh no another Black person killed or injured. Those involved just dont realize that they are instruments pitted against each other for lack of understanding the correct way. It is internal hatred acted out on.
So the comment of “I love the red bandana being thrown down……….”. It is not American History X, nowhere near.
