Man with Minor Gunshot Wound and a Power Outage After Shooting near New Holly Neighborhood

Seattle Police responded to a report of a damaged City Light equipment but instead located a man with a minor gunshot wound to his head in the 3900 block of South Warsaw Street near New Holly neighborhood Saturday evening. 

Police arrived just after 7:00 p.m. and contacted a man with a gunshot graze wound to his head. The male victim was in his vehicle when several shots were fired from another vehicle that drove into the area. In response, the victim drove off to escape further injury and collided with a power pole causing a momentary power outage in surrounding neighborhoods. Fragments or debris from gunfire reportedly struck an underground Seattle City Light conduit, causing a brief power outage in the area.

There were no suspects located but a sport utility vehicle possibly involved was last seen eastbound on South Warsaw Street. 

Officers provided medical aid until Seattle Fire Department personnel responded and transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center. Seattle City Light also responded to assist with the power outage. 

Gun Violence Reduction Unit will be investigating the ongoing case.
