Detectives investigating drive-by shooting at West Seattle home

The Gang Unit is investigating the second shooting in a week at a West Seattle home. This morning at approximately 1:32 a.m., officers were dispatched to a drive-by shooting at a house in the 2000 block of SW Cloverdale St.  Upon arrival, they located damage from small caliber rounds in the outer wall of the house.

One bullet fragment was removed from the wall and placed into evidence.  The only two people home at the time of the shooting were the parents of the family.  There is no suspect information and there were no witnesses to the shooting.  The residents of the house claim they have no idea as to why anyone would target their home.  This is the second drive-by shooting at this house in a week.

Everyone at the scene tonight denied any gang affiliation, but the stairs leading to the front door were tagged with gang graffiti. There were no reported injuries. The Gang Unit responded and processed the scene.

The investigation continues.
