On 02-19-2022 at 1241 hours, reporting party (RP) reported a shooting that occurred at SW Avalon Way and SW Spokane St. This incident started as a road rage disturbance at the large intersection of Delridge Way SW and SW Spokane St. The RP was driving east bound on SW Spokane when the suspect’s vehicle was driving “aggressively” past multiple vehicles. The RP indicated the suspect vehicle nearly struck or may have slightly struck his vehicle after a merge in which the suspect cut him off. This enraged the RP who merged in behind the suspect’s vehicle and began following him after honking and a mutual exchange of middle fingers (between himself and the suspect). At the intersection of 11th Ave SW and SW Spokane St the suspect leaned out the driver side window and fired approximately 4 times at the RP’s car. The suspect then quickly drove away, continuing east bound on SW Spokane St up and onto the West Seattle Bridge, towards 1st Ave S/ 4th Ave S/ S Columbian Way and the I5 North/South Interstate on ramps. The suspect’s vehicle was described only as a 4 door newer Lexus Sedan, black in color with no other distinguishable or unique markings. The RP’s vehicle had what appeared to be new damage, consistent with bullet damage.
