Large brawl on Alki included gunfire, fighting with baseball bats

Seattle Police responded Friday night to what they called “a large brawl” on Alki Beach at Whale Tail Park.

According to Seattle Police, there was a large group of people at the park when two women got into an argument, which escalated into a melee around 9 p.m. Someone fired multiple shots with a handgun, and one round went through the window of a home across the street in the 2600 block of Marine Avenue Southwest.

In multiple 911 calls, people reported fighting with baseball bats. When patrol cars arrived, people ran away in many directions, and several were detained.

Police didn’t identify any victims or suspects, but they recovered six bullet casings and booked one person for obstructing.

Here’s a previous post on the incident.
