Seattle Police Department detectives investigating the two officer-involved shootings over the recent holiday weekend are asking for anyone who witnessed either shooting, or the events leading up to them, to provide a statement.
Early Sunday morning, an officer shot and wounded a man in Belltown after receiving reports of someone threatening to shoot and kill another man in a parking lot near the 2200 block of First Avenue, SPD said. Detectives would like to speak with anyone who saw the shooting or the fight before the shooting.
Detectives would also like to speak with anyone who was in the vicinity of the 2900 block of First Avenue South in Sodo around 9:40 p.m. Monday. An officer shot Andrew Law, 36, at a bus stop after police said he threatened them with a gun.
Later, officers determined that Law, who died of his injuries, had used a fake gun.
Both officers involved in the shootings are on paid administrative leave.
Witnesses are asked to call the Seattle Police Homicide Tip Line at 206-233-5000. Anonymous tips are also welcome.
