Updated: Vehicle chase and gunshots; one injury

Update, 12 midnight:

Seattle Police report that an automotive confrontation followed by multiple gunshots sent one man to the hospital with a non-life-threatening wound to the bicep late Sunday night.

At about 10:35 p.m., three men in a Honda at Beacon Avenue South and South Spokane Street were fired at by suspects in “a small, foreign-model sedan.” The shot missed, and the victims took off. They ran into a planting strip in the 2200 block of South Lucile Street, got out of their car, and ran north on 22nd Avenue South.

The suspects, in their car, caught up to the victims at 22nd and Lucile. One suspect got out of the car and fired multiple rounds at the men, striking one in the right bicep. He then got back into the car and fled.

The suspects are still at large and there is no description available yet, nor is it known how many suspects were in the car, or what precipitated the original confrontation.

The original version of the story follows:

Seattle Police are currently investigating a shooting in the 2200 block of South Lucile Street (Mid-Beacon Hill) at around 10:45 p.m. late Sunday night that wounded a 24-year-old male in the bicep. The injury is not life-threatening, and the victim has been transported to Harborview by medics. Stay tuned for more information.

One neighbor in the area tweeted that it “sounded like 2 weapons firing back and forth” and another told the BHB “Lots of shots. Scary.

  1. Glad we left Gtown earlier than that. Beacon Hill is very unhip or edgy and we like it that way.

  2. At least in the wintertime these losers stay in and shoot each other from the comfort of their own homes.
