SPD releases additional information about last night’s shooting at 12th and Jefferson

Last night we reported on the shooting at 12th and Jefferson, and this morning SPD has more details:

A call of “shots fired” in the area of 12th and Jefferson last night is now being investigated as a shooting after a 24-year-old man walked into Harborview Medical Center with gunshot wounds to his arm and side.

Last night, at about 8:15 pm, East Precinct officers responded to several calls of “shots fired” near 12th and Jefferson.  Officers arrived but did not locate anything at that time.  Approximately 15 minutes later, officers were notified that  a gunshot wound victim had walked into Harborview’s Emergency Room and was taken into surgery.  The preliminary information is that the injury is not considered to be life-threatening.  Officers investigating the original call were able to locate shell casings in front of a business in the 400 Block of 12th Avenue.  A witness later informed police that the victim had been at the scene of the shooting.  Officers collected evidence from the scene and the hospital.  Detectives were notified and will be following up on this incident.

  1. I heard about 20-30 shots on Sunday night and the SPD report page shows a “drive-by shooting” at 29th Ave S and Norman St. There is another reported drive-by shooting that occurred last night in the 900 block of 28th Ave S., my partner heard the shots. What the hell is going on?

    • We checked in with SPD regarding the incident on Sunday night but didn’t have enough to warrant a story. Here’s what they said: “Officers did respond to a “shots fired” call in the 900 Blk of 28th Avenue South last night [Sunday] at about 10:20 pm. A few witnesses reported hearing the shots, but did not actually witness the shots fired. Officers did recover shell casings from the street. A parked car did appear to have some damage, but fortunately there were no injuries.”

      Interesting that there was a similar incident in the same area last night. We’ll check into that one this morning.
