SeattleCrime.com is reporting that police are trying to connect a suspect in a hit & run to a shooting from November of last year at 12th & Jefferson:
Seattle police are investigating a possible connection between a man arrested last year for a cross-town hit and run spree and an armed robbery in the Central District in which one man was wounded by gunfire.
According to a police search warrant affidavit released Monday, a 40-year-old man was walking near 12th Ave and E Jefferson St at about 11:30pm on November 30th when a group of three men—described as three black males in their late-teens to early-twenties, wearing black clothing—approached him and asked for a cigarette.
The 40-year-old man broke a cigarette in half and handed it to one of the men.
The group then surrounded the 40-year-old man, and one of the group members pulled out a handgun and told the man to hand over his cash. The 40-year-old man ran, then “heard one gunshot and felt pain in his forehead,” the affidavit says.
