A house in Seattle’s Central Area was riddled with bullets early this morning, one of two incidents of gunfire in the area overnight, according to Seattle police.
No one was injured and no one was arrested in any of the incidents.
About 3 a.m. today, officers were called to a home in the 700 block of 20th Avenue by people who heard gun shots in a possible drive-by shooting.
Officers found at least 15 bullet holes in the front of the house and one bullet hole in a side window. Inside the house, officers recovered five slugs. A fragmented slug was found in the house next door.
When police spoke with the occupants of the house riddled with gunshots, they claimed they did not see or hear anything except the gunfire.
Across the street, officers found twenty-four 9mm spent shell casings. No arrests have been made.
In a separate incident about 7:30 last night, officers were sent to 26th Avenue and East Spring Street where they found several spent shell casings on the north side of the intersection. A man there told them he had heard six to eight gunshots then saw a young man dressed in a black sweatshirt and dark pants running east on East Spring Street. Police searched the area, but no gunman was found.
Then about 10 p.m., officers were called to a parking lot in the 2800 block of East Cherry Street where they met a woman who said that she was about to go to a nearby apartment building with her infant daughter when she heard gunfire. She looked up and saw a man firing in her direction. She said she honked her horn and yelled to attract attention and the gunman then took off. Neither the woman nor her baby was hurt. A car near the woman’s car was hit by two bullets, however. Police searched for the gunman, but couldn’t find him.
