Shooting in the Cemetery

posted by on July 24 at 20:08 PM

Two elderly women were rushed to Harborview Medical Center Tuesday evening after police reported they had both suffered gunshot wounds in an apparent murder-suicide attempt at the Evergreen-Washelli Funeral Home and Cemetery in the 11000 block of Aurora Avenue North.

The women appeared to have been shot in a car parked along a road inside the cemetery next to a group of graves, said Seattle police spokeswoman Renee Witt.

Police were called to the cemetery shortly before 6 p.m. to investigate a call reporting shots fired in the area.

When officers arrived on the scene, they reported finding the bodies of the elderly women.

Witt said police are investigating to determine if the two victims were related, possibly mother and daughter. The younger woman was reported to be a 60-year-old Seattle resident, but police did not have a confirmed name, age or address for the other woman.

Witt said both suffered handgun wounds to the head, and a gun was recovered at the scene.

One of the women also left a note in the car, Witt said.

What's the world coming to when women gotta commit murder suicide on their own? Guess there wasn't a man who loved them enough to do it, like with normal murder suicide.

That cemetery has got to be one of the most beautiful and calm places in the city. This is really awful. :(

Is this related to the shooting at 11th and Pike St at 2 am?

Don't you mean, "Evergreen-Washelli Nightclub"?
