The 19-year-old man arrested after a 911 call reported he was seen with a gun near Cherry and 21st on Sunday night is a three-time convicted felon, the Seattle PI reports:
The suspect, who is at King County Jail for the fourth time in a year, is being held on $20,000 bail following a Monday afternoon court hearing.
The PI reports that the man has not yet been charged with a crime so is not yet naming the suspect.
Despite progress made in the area of 23rd and Union and increases in programs designed to help boost the area socially and economically, there are still periods like the past week when gang-related violence flares. CDN has also reported on two instances of vehicle-related gun activity this week. On May 5th, a road rage incident sparked this gunfire near 24th and Cherry. On May 4th, a suspect was arrested after shots were fired near Garfield Community Center at just after 4 in the afternoon.
