News Another Downtown Shooting
posted by August 11 at 10:15 AMon
Just after 11pm last night, two men were shot on the 1500 block of 1st avenue. One of the men was taken to Harborview with life-threatening injuries. The police have not released a motive for the shooting, but the good ol’ puritanical PI seems to have figured things out:
The shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m., and the two victims were reported to be wounded on the east sidewalk in the 1500 block of First Avenue, near Deja Vu Showgirls - a strip club across the street from the Pike Place Market. A block to the south, there was a scheduled concert at The Showbox featuring Devin the Dude, a Houston-based rapper.
It was unclear early Saturday what motivated the shooting, exactly where it took place or whether it involved any of those attending the concert at The Showbox.
Nice work, guys.
SPD Spokesman Jeff Kappel says there was “nothing to indicate [the shooting] was involved with the Showbox”
