Two Injured, One Arrested After Wednesday Night Ballard Shooting

Police arrested the suspect in a shooting that left two people injured late Wednesday night in Ballard.

At 11:05 p.m., police were dispatched to a physical fight in progress inside a shelter in the 6500 block of 12th Avenue Northwest. Within five minutes, a 911 caller reported someone had been shot at the same location.

Officers arrived and located two victims with gunshot wounds: a 60-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his arm, and a 49-year-old man with a graze wound to his arm. Seattle Fire Department medics transported both victims to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.

Police found and arrested the suspect a couple blocks away, and located a firearm in some nearby bushes.

Officers will book the 35-year-old suspect into King County Jail for assault in the first degree.
