Early morning shots fired in South Seattle, 3 suspects arrested

On May 29th, at approximately 3:25 am, officers were in the parking area of Stan Sayres  Pits when they heard several shots being fired.  Officers noted that there was only one car on Lake Washington Boulevard South at that time of the morning.  The car, a 2001 BMW 540 was driving southbound along Lake Washington Blvd. S.  Officers caught up with the BMW near South Genesee and conducted a stop of the car.  Once there were enough officers at the scene, the occupants were removed from the car.  Officers noted that it appeared that a semi-automatic handgun was underneath the front passenger seat.  The occupants were all placed under arrest and the BMW was impounded to the processing room pending a search warrant.

The suspects, a 26 year old female, a 25 year old male, and a 19 year old male all stated that they didn’t know anything about any shots fired.  They were later booked into the King County Jail for unlawful discharge of a weapon.  Officers returned to the area of the shots fired and conducted an area search for any injured persons or property damage, but did not locate any.
