Woman arrested after drive-by shooting in Belltown

A 20-year-old woman was arrested early Saturday in connection with a drive-by shooting in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood.

Officers were in the area when they heard shots fired around 1 a.m. near First Avenue and Blanchard Street. A woman reported that a bullet came through her apartment window and witnesses reported seeing a white Camaro fleeing the area, Seattle police said.

A trail of blood was found at the scene, but as of Saturday afternoon, a victim had not been located.

Police found the Camaro crashed in the 900 block of South Dearborn Street. The driver fled, leaving behind the woman and a man, 22, who had been riding in the backseat. Police interviewed and released him.

Police recovered a 9mm handgun at the crash.

This is the second shooting in Belltown this week. Monday’s shooting left a 21-year-old man injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call the tip line at 206-233-5000.
