Gang member arrested in connection with Beacon Hill shooting

A 19-year-old gang member suspected of shooting a 17-year-old man in the leg in a Beacon Hill drive-by has been arrested, according to the Seattle Police Department.

Gang Unit detectives say the 19-year-old, an Insane Boyz gang member, shot the other young man during a monthslong gang feud with the Tiny Raskal Gangsters on Sept. 5.

The victim, who was walking near 29th Avenue South and South Dawson when he was shot, refused to tell detectives who shot him, according the police department’s online blotter. Detectives were able to gather evidence at the scene that helped them continue the investigation.

Detectives eventually had enough evidence to arrest the 19-year-old on a warrant for gun charges filed earlier this month. Police say he then said he had shot and wounded the 17-year-old in September.

He’s being held at the King County Jail for assault, drive-by shooting, and unlawful possession of a firearm, police said.
