3 shot near area night club

On 11/16/09, at approximately 1:45 a.m., officers responded to numerous calls of shots fired in the roadway behind the 1900 blk of 1st Avenue South.    Dozens of cars and persons were fleeing the area as the callers were talking to the 911 operators. 

When Officers arrived two possible vehicles were pointed out as being involved.  Two persons were arrested from the vehicles for warrants and weapons violations (gun w/o a CCW), but it appeared neither parties were involved. 

Three victims showed up at Harborview Medical Center (HMC) with non-life threatening injuries.  One male was shot in the leg and groin, one male was grazed on the neck and a female was shot in the jaw.  All of them appear to also be uninvolved bystanders and didn’t see who shot them. 

A number of  casing (3 different calibers) were recovered from the intersection of Walker and Occidental.  Property damage to windows of local businesses and parked vehicles were found. 

One witness described one of the shooters as a BM wearing a white tee-shirt.
