Update On This Morning’s Shooting(s)

I tossed up a quick post early this morning on a shooting in South Seattle. Turns out there were two of ’em, according to SPD:

On March 12th at approximately 12:09 a.m. officers responded to a shooting that occurred at Rainier Avenue South and South Henderson Street.  Preliminary investigation indicates that two groups confronted each other and exchanged words.  Shortly thereafter shots were fired and one subject was hit in the wrist. 

SFD medics responded to the scene and transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.  After the shooting the involved parties left the area and no suspect description was provided to investigating officers.

At approximately 1:02 a.m. officers responded to 46th Avenue South and South Henderson Street for reports of a man shot.  Officers located a victim with a gunshot wound to the wrist.  The victim was subsequently transported to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Preliminary investigation indicates that elements of the same two groups that were involved in the previous incident less than an hour earlier met back up and violence erupted a second time.  The only suspect information provided to officers was a partial vehicle description: a white Cadillac STS.  The suspects/vehicle remain at large.

Gang Unit detectives are actively investigating both shootings.
