A man was arrested Tuesday after he fired a gun and tried to lure children into his car in South Seattle, police said.
Officers responded to reports of shots being fired in Seattle’s Brighton neighborhood around 3:15 p.m., according to the Seattle Police Department. Three nearby schools had their students “shelter in place” as a precaution, police said.
Around the same time, someone called 911 to report that a man was trying to lure several children into his car in the same area of Rainier Avenue South and South Graham Street.
The luring suspect matched the description of the man who had fired gunshots, police said.
Officers arrested a 33-year-old man after a witness pointed him out and recovered a loaded handgun, police said.
He was booked into King County Jail.
