Shots fired in South Seattle, no injuries

On March 5th at approximately 7:57 p.m. officers responded to 911 calls reporting shots fired at 38th Avenue South and MLK Way South.  Two vehicles were seen leaving south.  Officers arrived in the 6500 block of 38th Avenue South and spoke with several juveniles who were on the porch of a nearby home.  Investigation indicated that at least some of these juveniles had been in one of the involved vehicles.  They apparently had pulled over near their residence when a juvenile male came by on a bicycle and stopped near their car.  The male on the bicycle was shortly thereafter struck from behind by a 1980’s sedan that was traveling southbound.  The bicyclist and the driver of the sedan exchanged words.  A handgun was then extended from the car and pointed at the bicyclist.  Several shots were fired at which point the sedan and the victim bicyclist fled in unknown directions.  The subjects in the initial vehicle drove down to their house and got out.  Shortly thereafter officers arrived in the area.

Officers canvassed the area but couldn’t find any property damage or injured victims.  The suspects remain at large.
