On 05-26-2021 at 0219 hours, officers responded to a city park located in the 2300 block of Arboretum Dr. E where a security officer located forced entry after an alarm trip. When officers arrived, they quickly set up containment and heard movement inside. A Kirkland K-9 unit responded and assisted with a building search. Ultimately the suspect was gone upon arrival. The movement inside was discovered to be a large rodent. It appears no major monetary loss occurred as the building alarm or rodent most likely scared the suspect away.

Officers determined that occupants of a dark colored sedan fired upon the victim vehicle, near the intersection of 51st Ave S / S Ryan Way, striking it nine times. The two adult female victims (driver and front seat passenger) were struck in the legs and abdomen but appeared in stable condition. Officers located evidence of a shooting at the scene. The victim vehicle was impounded. Gun Violence Reduction Unit Detectives responded to Harborview Medical Center to interview the victims and one witness. The GVRU will handle follow up responsibilities.
