House, multiple cars damaged in South Seattle shooting
SEATTLE -- One house and multiple cars were damaged during a shooting Thursday night in South Seattle, and police have been unable to turn up any victims or suspects.
According to the Seattle Police Department, shots were reported fired around 7:45 p.m. near Beacon Avenue South and South Leo Street.
Officers arrived to find a Ford Crown Victoria abandoned after hitting a telephone pole and a parked car. According to police, it appears the Ford was being chased and shot at by people in another vehicle.
One of the bullets fired by the other vehicle went through the window of a house in the 11000 block of Beacon Avenue South, according to police. The home's 51-year-old resident was standing near the window at the time but wasn't hit; a car parked in front of the house wasn't so lucky.
According to early reports, witnesses said they saw a black man in his 20s with dreadlocks and wearing all black clothing run off from the passenger seat of a white pickup truck following the shooting. Later reports state witnesses saw two men, one of whom had a gun, running from an unspecified vehicle at the scene.
Police are continuing to investigate the situation.
