Man Shot in Arm Sunday Morning on Capitol Hill

Detectives are investigating after a man was shot in the arm early Sunday morning on Capitol Hill.

Officers on patrol in the 1500 block of Broadway just before 4 a.m. Sunday morning heard multiple gunshots coming from a nearby parking garage.  Officers quickly converged on the area and saw multiple cars leaving the area.

Witnesses began calling 911 and reporting that some people in a Chevy Tahoe may have been involved.  Officers spotted that vehicle leaving the area and stopped it.  The officers noticed bullet damage to the SUV and saw a handgun on the floorboard. The passenger, a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing a firearm, admitted to owning the gun. Officers placed the man in custody and booked him into King County Jail for the firearms violation. Officers impounded the Tahoe for further investigation.

While investigating, a man arrived at Harborview Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the arm, in a vehicle that was seen by witnesses fleeing the shooting scene.  Officers spoke with the shooting victim and released him pending additional investigation.

Officers collected 27 shell casings of varying calibers from the garage. Homicide/Assault detectives will be conducting follow-up investigation as this case moves forward.
