SPD investigating two overnight shooting incidents

Seattle police are investigating reports of gunfire in the Central Area and in the University District last night and early this morning.

Police spokesman Patrick Michaud said that officers were first called to the area of 23rd Avenue South and South Judkins Street just after 11:30 p.m. Witnesses told police that someone opened fire from the passenger seat of a white Mercedes.

Nobody was hurt. Police believe at least eight shots were fired; one bullet was found in the rear bumper of a parked car.

Just before 3 a.m. officers were called to the area of Northeast 52nd Street and University Way Northeast for another report of gunfire.

Witnesses told police they saw two people fighting in the street before one of the men opened fire, Michaud said. No one was hurt; officers found three shell casings in the street and damage to a parked car.

Police did not offer detailed descriptions of the two men. They could be driving a maroon Buick and a silver Chevrolet Impala.

Anyone with information is asked to dial 911.
