We got a tip today about a shooting last night at 7:15pm, when CDNews was coincidentally hanging out at a crime forum.
It all started when a witness near 18th & Main heard a gunshot, then heard a man scream “I’ve been shot.” The witness saw the victim fall to the ground, then a woman in a white Chevy Tahoe drove up, offered assistance, loaded up the victim, and drove away northbound.
That started a search around the neighborhood for the Tahoe (registered to an Auburn address) and the victim. That search came up empty until an hour later, at 8:15pm, when a man walked into Swedish Cherry Hill hospital with a gunshot wound.
The victim was transported to Harborview for treatment. SPD spokesperson Renee Witt tells us that the victim was interviewed by gang detectives at the hospital.
Sorry to have missed the forum. How was it?
