Man Says He Was So Intoxicated He Doesn’t Remember Getting Shot

A man found with a gunshot wound over the weekend told police he’d been shot in the leg two days earlier, but couldn’t recall any details.

When officers arrived at Airport Way S and S Massachusetts at about 8 pm Saturday night, Seattle Fire Department officials were already treating the man for a gunshot wound to his shin.

The man said he’d been extremely intoxicated within the last several days, and although he recalled the shooting had happened several days earlier, he did not remember where, when, or who had shot him. The man didn’t want to answer officers’ other questions about the incident.

The man was taken to Harborview with non-life-threatening injuries.
