One Teen Killed, One Wounded At Late-Night Party

posted by on January 4 at 9:22 AM

Just before midnight, police were called to Studio One-Sixteen—a rented art space on 1st and Elliot Ave W—after shots broke out at a birthday party, leaving a 17-year-old boy dead and a 13-year-old girl injured.

According to police, two men showed up at the party—filled with over 100 area high-school students—and got into a verbal altercation with the 17-year-old. The uninvited men flashed guns and fired shots into the crowd.

The men fled the party, but police say they may have identified one of the suspects.

Looks like a software bug to me.

I wondered what race these kids were and KING 5 didn't disappoint with their video .

No worries, it was just another black on black shooting....the SPD Gang Unit investigating. Last we'll hear of this.

Let them focus on finding the guy who stabbed the white girl on Capital Hill.

Where is the condemnation and outrage from the NAACP?

They always seem to harangue the media and press when a white person is involved ... but never when there is black on black crime.

This epidemic of black on black crime seems to be spiraling out of control and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Or care for that matter.

Relax, everything is going according to plan. We've been coaching people for 30 years.

hey! my incredibly clever comment is gone.

the one where i assured everyone that these young men must have been in a well-regulated militia or they wouldn't have had guns.

it was'nt rascist, it was ironically pro-gun control.

When I was a teen, greaser malcontents occasionally invaded our sockhops with stone clubs, creating havoc, committing mayhem. Revenge was taken by refusing them honor society membership, discouraging their attendance at the prom and graduating without felony conviction. And never once did our parents fail to ask before we went out: "I trust you're not packing a piece to the party" or "I hope you protect your sister from being shot." Christ, the fifties were fun!
