Police Investigating Late-Night Gunfire In West Seattle

Some jerk with a rifle gave neighbors in Highland Park a bit of a scare Tuesday night.

Around 9:30 last night, police received several reports of gunfire near 11th Avenue SW and SW Elmgrove Street.

Neighbors told police they saw a white sedan, possibly a Pontiac Grand Prix, speeding up and down streets while someone in the passenger seat fired at least nine rifle rounds into the air.

The suspects were gone by the time officers arrived, but police collected nine shell casings at the scene. It appears no one was injured and nothing was damaged during the incident.
