Police arrest man with gun after Belltown disturbance

After two shootings in Belltown last week, the Seattle Police Department says it prevented a probable shooting Saturday night with quick action by patrol officers.

After bar closing early Saturday morning, officers monitoring the area noticed a disturbance near the 2200 block of First Avenue and people running away. Someone told officers a man had a gun, police say.

Shortly after 2 a.m., police say, officers found a man on the ground with a gun in his hand as well as the man’s brother in the crowd with a gun in his waistband.

The brothers, both in their 20s, were both arrested. One was released while the other was booked into King County Jail on suspicion of felony gun charges and outstanding warrants.

Early last week there was a shooting that left a 21-year-old man injured followed by a drive-by shooting last Saturday.
