Gang Unit Investigating Stabbing Last Night at Westwood Village

Gang Unit detectives are handling the follow up to a stabbing of two people last night at the Westwood Village.  The two victims, ages 15 and 21, were transported to Harborview Medical Center with multiple  stab wounds.

At about 6:45 pm, several Southwest Precinct officers were handling a disturbance call in the 2600 Block of SW Barton when someone came running up to them stating that someone had been stabbed across the street.  Officers immediately ran over and found the 15-year-old male on the street.  Seattle Fire was immediately called and responded.  A second victim, the 21-year-old, was found across the street. 

As the victims were being attended to, their friends told officers what had happened.  The group of friends had gone to Westwood Village when they confronted another group of Hispanic males.  The two victims reportedly got into a fist fight with the group and during the fight the man was stabbed by one of the suspects.  The Hispanic males reportedly then fled.  The 15-year-old and another friend gave chase, catching up to and confronting them near the QFC.  According to witnesses, the 15-year-old collapsed in the street with multiple stab wounds.  Both of the victims were treated at the scene and then transported to HMC.  The suspects, only described as Hispanic males, fled the scene. 

Gang Unit detectives responded to the scene and will be handling the investigation.
