Shots fired, one victim at hospital

On December 6th  at approximately 11:30 P.M.,  multiple units from the South Precinct responded to a large disturbance involving over 150  juveniles at a event in the 7000 Block of 32 Avenue South.  Security guards had been working the event there when one suspect pulled out a gun, so they called 911. At that time, units responding were given a vehicle description of a white American made car that the suspect had possibly gotten into. Upon arriving, officers found juveniles fleeing from the library as well as multiple fight disturbances in the building. The event was shut down and the guests were ordered to leave the premise.  A short time later, officers responded to Harborview Medical Center where a gunshot victim had been taken. The victim stated he had been shot in the 4600 block of S. Othello and gave a suspect vehicle description of a white American car. Officers responded to 4600 S. Othello and located  shell casings as well as damage to a residence and the victim’s vehicle.  The victim’s wounds were not life threatening. Based on the victim’s description of the suspect vehicle, it is believed that the two incidents are related.  The investigation into the shooting continues.
