Man crashes South Lake Union party, steals wine and points shotgun at guests

A 27-year-old man was arrested Sunday night after he pointed a shotgun at several people during a confrontation at his apartment, Seattle police said.

The man reportedly walked into a private party in the common area of an apartment complex in the 900 block of Dexter Avenue North about 7:30  p.m. and stole several bottles of wine, according to police. Two of the victims knew where the man lived and went to his apartment to retrieve the wine, police said.

The man pointed his shotgun at one of them during the ensuing confrontation. The men left, but then several of the victims grabbed sticks and returned to confront the thief, who pointed his shotgun at members of the group, police said.

Police were called and arrested the man and confiscated his shotgun. He was booked into King County Jail on investigation of harassment, according to police.
