Shots fired in South Seattle

On January 1st, 2012 at approximately 11:14 a.m. officers responded to 911 reports of multiple gunshots in the area of the 8400 block of 54th Avenue South.  Approximately three minutes later multiple gunshots were fired into a home in the 7600 block of 45th Avenue South.  At least three rounds entered an upstairs bedroom where two adults were sleeping.  Nobody was hit or injured in the incident.  In both incidents, the suspect was gone upon the arrival of officers.

Preliminary investigation indicates that this is not a random act and that the suspect and victims are known to each other.  It is further believed that the same suspect is responsible for both incidents. 

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
