Police Investigating After Security Guard’s Car Damaged In Shooting

Police are investigating after three gunmen opened fire on a security guard’s empty vehicle late Tuesday evening on First Hill.

At 10:39 pm, police received multiple reports of gunfire in the 1000 block of James Street.

When officers arrived on scene, they found a grey Dodge Charger, belonging to a private security company, which had been damaged by gunfire.

Police learned the security guard had pulled his vehicle into an alleyway and gotten out of his car to move a mattress, which was blocking his path.

As he was outside of the car, three gunmen opened fire from both ends of the alley, striking his vehicle.

Witnesses reported seeing a silver Mercedes and a black BMW flee the scene.

No one was injured in the incident.
