Shots fired in Mt. Baker area

On 11/20/09, at approximately 10:40 p.m., officers responded to the 3500 block of S. Mt. Baker Blvd.  and found 2 parked vehicles and the front windows to a dance studio damaged by gun fire.

Security at the community hall where a dance was underway, stated they heard shots fired and saw a BM with a gun in his hand, outside the door of a newer dark sedan. The vehicle fled S/B at a high rate of speed.  Officers contacted a possible involved vehicle in the area and the occupants were detained.  The occupants stated they were at a dance at the community hall, but fled when they heard the gun shots.  No firearms were found in the car. 

Approximately 45 minutes after the initial call a fight disturbance broke out at Rainier and MLK where a BM victim was knocked unconscious by numerous BMs.  Officers contacted 2 subjects who were detained as possible suspects.

The witnesses were not able to positively identify the 2 males. They were indentified and released at the scene.  The assault at MLK and Rainier Av S. may have been related to the earlier shooting.  Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 911.
