Seattle police say someone recently left paper targets, pock-marked with bullet holes, at two sites on Capitol Hill, including the office of the League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County.
Workers at the League of Women Voters’ office at 1620 18th Ave. found the first target on July 5, police said.
The second target, which also had bullet holes, was found tacked to a tree July 17 at 17th Avenue and East Madison Street, about two blocks away from League of Women Voters office.
Police are investigating.
In response, the league called the incident an “apparent intimidation attempt” and posted the following message on its website:
The League of Women Voters has long been engaged in gun violence prevention education and advocacy. Most recently, the League took a position in favor of Initiative 594, a measure to close loopholes in our state’s background check law which is headed for the November ballot.
