Suspect Arrested in Rainier Beach Double Shooting

Seattle Police say they have made an arrest in a double shooting last month that left a 15-year old boy critically injured.

A 29-year old man was also shot in the back in the incident that occurred near the intersection of Rainier Avenue South and South Fisher Place.

According to Seattle Police Department spokesman Jeff Kappel, a 27-year old male suspect was arrested on Tuesday in the City of Normandy Park.

“With the assistance of Normandy Park police officers, SPD Gang detectives placed the suspect under surveillance,” he wrote. “As the suspect was getting into a parked car, Gang detectives moved in and placed him under arrest.”

He added that detectives recovered a white Chevy Tahoe at the scene of the arrest that is believed to be the vehicle the suspect fired from on the day of the shooting.

The Tahoe was impounded and the suspect was interviewed by SPD Gang detectives and subsequently booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault (Felony Assault with a firearm).

Element: reading your post has left me feeling unsettled. Something about it is creepy for me, a bad sort of feeling. And believe me when I say I have no sympathy for gang violence, intimidation, any of the cr*p they use. But to tie them up in a bag of “wimpy simpletons” is not accurate. If “they” are so stupid, why are we adressing this issue decade after decade…. Are “we” that stupid? It is a very complex issue.
Anyway, lovely Seattle skies today. I am looking forward to spring springing.

I’ve noticed that the thugs commit their crime, which can easily land them in prison for many years, and then they stick around the hood, regardless. You’d think they would get out of the country, or at least drive to the Mexican border.

Nope, not our local thugs. They stick around and brag about it. Their lives are meaningless if they can’t bask in the social puffery that comes with pulling off a senseless crime before their peer group. Little attention-starved, wimpy simpletons, IMO. Take them out of their element and they are NO-THING.

Chevy Tahoe? Normandy Park? Hmmm….
