SEATTLE - Seattle Police detectives are investigating five shootings over the weekend.
Officers patrolling Pioneer Square early Saturday morning heard gunshots near Occidental Avenue South and South Yesler Way. They found two women who said they were in an argument with a man at a nearby club, when he pulled out a gun and shot at them. The two women both had concealed carry permits, and took out their own guns and shot back. The man ran off and police were unable to find him, though they seized three guns at the scene. Both women were released pending an investigation.
Later at 5:15 p.m., officers were called to a robbery shooting in the Othello neighborhood. A man allegedly walked into a cellphone store and asked to see the new iPhone, and when an employee brought it to him, he walked out the store with it. The employee tried to stop him, but the man took out a gun and shot into the store before running away.
Officers did not find the suspect, and detectives will be conducting a follow-up investigation.
At 9:45 p.m., a man called police and said he was involved in a road rage incident in the Columbia City neighborhood. He said a man driving a Toyota Corolla was driving aggressively in the area, then pulled up next to him at a stop light and started yelling at him. The victim then heard two gunshots, although police did not find any damage to his car or find any bullet casings.
At 1:50 a.m. Sunday, a man was shot near the Fauntleroy Ferry. Police arrived and rendered aid until an ambulance arrived to take him to Harborview. Officers found a bullet casing nearby, and while witnesses said they heard the shooting and saw the victim, they were unable to describe a possible suspect.
After that, police were called to another shooting near where First Avenue South turns into Second Avenue Southwest. There, they found a victim who had been shot in the groin, who told officers the suspect was driving a white Ford Fusion. Police were unable to find the suspect, other witnesses or evidence of a shooting.
