Gang Member Wounded In Late-Night Central District Shooting

A 20-year-old self-professed gang member was wounded in a shooting outside a Central District home Monday evening.

Around 10:15pm Monday night, the 20-year-old man was walking up to a home on 23rd Avenue and E. Alder Street when a dark-colored four door sedan rolled down the street behind him. Someone in the back seat of the car stuck a gun out the car’s window and fired at least three shots, striking the victim in his arm. The suspects then sped off.

At the scene, several witnesses admitted they had heard the shooting, but refused to provide officers with any other information.

Medics arrived and transported the victim—who admitted to police that he is a member of a Central District gang—to Harborview for treatment.

SPD’s Gang Unit is investigating.
