Saturday Memo: Shooting suspect in court … Spring forward … Hansen’s air ball

First court appearance: Carolyn “Zoom” Piksa, 46, the longtime Seattle Parks and Recreation employee suspected of Friday’s shooting at a parks maintenance building, is expected to make her first court appearance today at the King County Jail. The victim, 65-year-old Bill Keller, who oversees the city’s community centers, is in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center.

Spring forward: Daylight saving time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday. Clocks should be turned forward one hour, which means one less hour of beauty sleep tonight

4Q air ball: Investor Chris Hansen’s hedge fund posted dismal fourth-quarter losses, in what Hansen called Valiant Capital Partners’ worst quarterly performance since he started the company in 2008. Hansen, who hopes to buy and relocate the Sacramento Kings to Seattle, tried to reassure investors that “investing, not basketball, is and has always been” his passion.

Accidental shooting investigated: A 14-year-old boy was shot in the leg Friday night in Georgetown in what appears to be a conflicting account of events. Police responded to a report of shots fired, after which several males were reportedly seen running through a parking lot. At the hospital, however, the victim said that he had been sitting in a car with his friend, who was playing with a handgun until it accidentally discharged. The victim ran to the house and his father drove him to Harborview Medical Center while his friend fled the scene, according to the boy. Police are investigating.
