Firsthand account

Posted by on March 26 at 10:17 AM

A partygoer who wants to go by his rave name, Superman, just told me that he and his girlfriend hitched a ride to the after-party with another partier named Kian, whom he had only known about a week. Superman and his girlfriend left the party at 6:30 — a half-hour before the shooting began. Kian stayed at the party.

Kian was wearing blinking gloves, just like the ones described in at least one news account. It has been reported that one partygoer had been shot through the arm and in the side and had taken refuge at a neighbor’s house. He had asked the neighbors to help him take off his gloves. Superman believes that Kian is one of the two people still at Harborview Medical Center. Of course, Harborview has not confirmed this information, and until they do, nothing is certain.

If anyone has more information, please email me at We’ll post news when we get it.
