On 11-22-2021 at 2008 hours, officers were responding to a robbery of a retail store in the Westwood Village area. The suspect was last observed boarding a Metro coach heading westbound from the area. As the officer travelled southbound, he entered the intersection of 35 Ave SW / SW Barton St, he began a left turn but diverted due to him seeing a Metro bus west of his location. The officer began turning to the right and collided with a southbound vehicle. No injuries were initially reported but Seattle Fire was summoned later for possible seatbelt related pain. SFD checked the other driver and they declined further assistance. Both vehicles sustained damage but were otherwise drivable. Media was on scene.

#2021-310202/East Precinct/Third Watch:

On 11-22-2021 at 2306 hours, multiple callers reported shots fired in the area of Judkins Park. One caller reported a bullet entered their home in the 800 block of 20 Pl S. Officers responded and located a vehicle abandoned that had fled the scene (it was later determined to likely be a victim vehicle). After speaking to witnesses it was determined that there was a party of 20 subjects drinking & smoking in the 2000 block of S Nye Pl when the shots occurred. Evidence of a shooting was located on the walking trail north of 20 Pl S / S Nye Pl and in the 800 block of 20 Pl S. Due to the location of the evidence, it appears the shots were fired towards the group of people drinking possibly in an ambush style of attack. A witness reported seeing a group of three males run out of the park and then westbound onto S Dearborn St. One of the males appeared to be wearing body armor. A short time later that same witness heard additional shots west of 20 Av S. A second scene was not located. No victims or partygoers were located. Patrol processed the scene.
