Police Arrest Teenager, Seize Stolen Gun After Shots Fired in SLU

Police arrested a 19-year-old man after he fired a stolen gun in South Lake Union Wednesday night.

At 5:09 p.m., a 911 caller reported a man had just fired a gun at the intersection of Stewart Street and Denny Way. Thanks to witnesses’ description of the suspect, officers spotted and arrested the man as he was leaving the area on foot. Police found the gun under a nearby vehicle. 

A records check revealed the gun had been stolen out of a car, when the car was stolen in Capitol Hill earlier this month. 

Officers booked the man into the King County Jail for unlawful discharge of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, and possession of a stolen firearm.
