Thursday Memo: Boy finds unsecured gun, sister shot … Likely DUI death … May Day poll

National Weather Service forecast

National Weather Service forecast

Another kid finds a gun — and a sibling is shot. Happened in Auburn yesterday. The younger of the two, a 7-year-old boy, found a gun in a closet and shot his 9-year-old sister. She was hit in the leg. The injury isn’t life-threatening. Guns that should be put in places where kids can’t get them sometimes go off and hit other kids. This shouldn’t be happening, of course, but is still does. This could well have been a lot worse.

Another DUI death: A young woman is dead in a crash that may have involved drinking and driving. She was in the back seat of a car with five others when the car hit a barrier on I-5 near Sixth Avenue. She wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the car. The State Patrol says the driver is suspected of driving drunk and could face a charge of vehicular homicide. KING5 has more information.

Yesterday’s protests, marches and mayhem: Police now say 17 people were arrested in the May Day messes yesterday. Number was initially 18. Windows broken, some cars damaged, some cops injured but not too badly. We’re glad that’s over. Did you follow news of the May Day events in Seattle yesterday? Vote in our poll.

Hot, hot, hot … well, if 70 degrees is hot for you. Weather looks great today and for several days to come. Enjoy.
