Domestic Assault/Car Crash/Shot Fired in West Seattle

On May 5th at approximately 1:08 p.m. officers responded to a domestic disturbance involving a vehicle collision and shots fired in the 2600 block of SW Brandon Street.  Preliminary investigation indicates that the 24-year-old male suspect assaulted his 17-year-old girlfriend while driving in a 2001 white Chevy Monte Carlo.  During this in-vehicle disturbance the suspect drove recklessly and crashed into the woods south of the West Seattle Golf Course.  The suspect then fired a gunshot at the victim and fled into the woods on foot.

The car sustained a bullet hole through the passenger door outward, but the victim was not hit and did not require medical attention.  No innocent bystanders were injured as a result of the incident.

A large wooded area between the West Seattle Golf Course and High Point was contained by officers and two canine units tracked and searched the wooded area for an extended period of time without locating the suspect, who remains at large.

The Chevy was impounded and taken to the evidence garage.

Domestic Violence detectives will have responsibility for the on-going investigation.
