One teen was wounded by gunfire at Rainier and Henderson last night.
On August 16th, at approximately 9:40 PM, South Precinct officer responded to a call of multiple shots fired around Rainier Avenue South and South Henderson Street. The suspect was described by witnesses as a black male, in his 20′s , approximately 5′-6″, wearing a red shirt and black shorts. He was armed with a revolver. The suspect was gone by the time officers arrived. Officers did locate shell casings near the scene. A teenage male victim was located along with two of his friends in the 9200 Block of Rainier Avenue South. That victim sustained a minor bullet graze to his back. He was treated by the Seattle Fire Department at the scene and released. The suspect remains at large.
A Seattlecrime.com reader, who texted us last night, said they heard seven shots fired.
An SPD spokesman would not dismiss the possibility that that the shooting was gang-related.
