One dead, three injured in Alki shooting Monday night
information from Seattle Police Blotter
One man was killed and three others were shot late Monday night at Alki Beach.
Just before midnight, multiple 911 callers reported a shooting in the 2600 block of Alki Avenue Southwest. When police arrived, a citizen was performing CPR on one of the victims. Officers took over and attempted life-saving measures, but the man was declared deceased at the scene. Two additional victims – a man and a woman – were transported from the scene by ambulance in stable condition. Another male victim was taken to the hospital in a personal vehicle.
According to witnesses, two groups got into an argument that escalated and led to the shooting.
Seattle Police Chief Adrian Diaz came to the scene and asked the public for help with any information regarding this incident. "We've had over 222 shots fired in this year alone. We've got to figure out ways to keep these guns off the streets," Diaz said.
Diaz said that it appeared the two groups did not know each other but that it is still under investigation.
The Crime Scene Investigation Team responded to process the scene and gather evidence. Homicide Detectives also responded and will continue to investigate. Anyone with information about this incident should call the Violent Crimes Tip Line at (206) 233-5000.
