Shortly after 1 pm Tuesday, police received reports of gunshots near Waters Avenue South and South Carver Street.
According to a witness, the 18-year-old suspect leaned out of the passenger-side window of an SUV and fired off 13 rounds at a group of south Seattle gang members in another car, and sped off.
No one was injured in the shooting.
“When officers arrived at the scene, they found the victims’ car on the street,” wrote SPD spokesperson Jonah Spangenthal-Lee. “Officers found two bullets lodged in the side of the car, which was also damaged when the driver sideswiped another car while speeding backwards down S. Carver Street to escape the gunman.”
He added that patrol officers spotted the 18-year-old suspect outside of his apartment at 13th Avenue and E. Madison Street, about seven hours after the shooting and contacted Gang Detectives who arrested the man.
The suspect was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm, assault, and drive-by shooting.
