Police Need Your Help Finding Suspects In Pioneer Square Shooting

UPDATE: Police have identified all of the people seen in this video, but still need help locating the vehicle seen in the video and those responsible for Westbrook’s murder.

The Seattle Police Department needs the public’s help in finding the person who indiscriminately opened fire in Pioneer Square Sunday morning, seriously wounding 21-year-old Nicole Westbrook.

Westbrook and her boyfriend were walking home from a comedy club after 2 am on April 22, when a white car rolled past them on 2nd Avenue and Yesler Way. Someone in the car fired several shots out into the street, striking Westbrook in her neck. Patrol officers arrived on scene within 20 seconds and gave Westbrook CPR until medics arrived a short time later. She is currently in critical condition at Harborview.

The department does not believe she or her boyfriend were the intended target of the shooting, which was captured by a surveillance camera.

If you witnessed Sunday’s shooting or have information about the vehicle or suspects involved the incident, please contact the Seattle Police Department’s violent crimes hotline at (206) 233-5000.
Mayor Mike McGinn, SPD Chief John Diaz, and Deputy Chief Nick Metz discussed the shooting at a press conference Tuesday, which you can view here:
