At 2158 hours, a suspect stood on the sidewalk directly in front of the victim residence and fired three shots from a 9mm firearm into the victim’s home. Multiple callers reported hearing the shots, but no one saw the suspect. The victims in the home reported that they had a previous burglary incident at the home in which the homeowner confronted the suspect in the back yard. That suspect was armed with a pistol at the time. That suspect was later located and arrested nearby on Rainier Av S. That suspect was released from jail and currently has several burglary warrants for his arrest, including one for the case involving these victims. It is unknown if the previous burglary suspect perpetrated this shooting. Officers conducted an area check for the possible suspect, but did not locate him. Patrol officers processed the shooting scene and collected shell casings from the sidewalk, and two projectiles from within the home.
