Woman shot in the arm

On 01-15-11 at approximately 4:09 a.m., in the 500 block of Battery Street a victim was shot in the forearm by an unknown suspect. Statements by both the victim and the witness left a lot of details out as both seemed to be a bit coy about being 100% truthful to Officers. Responding Officers pieced together the following story…

The 2 females, victim and witness meet the suspect in the area of the 7-11 in the 300 block of Denny way. The suspect then walked with the victim and witness for some time. An argument between them resulted in the suspect pulling a small black handgun and shooting the victim in the right forearm.

The suspect then fled in a southbound direction. An area search was negative. The suspect was described as a black male, 28 years old, Med Build, 5-08, 160 pounds, wearing a brown coat, black jeans, black or brown boots.

The victim’s injuries were non-life threatening and the victim had to be convinced to go to Harborview Medical Center.
