Seattle police seized guns and marijuana after shots were fired in Belltown early Saturday.
Bike patrol officers were patrolling at 2:30 a.m. when they heard gunshots in the 2300 block of First Avenue. A witness pointed to a green Chevrolet Caprice as it sped away. Officers found a dozen bullet casings from several types of guns at the scene.
Although several buildings and cars had been struck by gunfire, no one was injured.
Other patrol officers pulled over the Caprice near 21st Avenue and East Union Street. While police confirmed the driver’s identity, they could not tie him to the shooting and released him.
Officers searched the car later with a warrant and found an AK-47 assault-style rifle, two loaded magazines, one loaded .38-caliber revolver, a scale, small bags and 25.5 grams of marijuana. The guns and pot have been turned over to detectives.
