One person reported shot in foot after Harvard gunfire — Also, overnight shots in the Central District
Posted on Sunday, October 4, 2015 – 7:39 am by jseattle
A Seattle Police officer heard multiple, rapid fire gunshots ring out across Pike/Pine early Sunday morning and Seattle Fire treated a victim reported to have been shot in the foot in a second night of gunfire in the area. Meanwhile, police found shell casings and a large crowd following a second reported “assault with weapons” incident in the Central District — but, fortunately, no victim.
This research was commissioned by the federal monitoring team to assess community
perceptions of the Seattle police, gauge the prevalence of community interactions with the
police, and understand the nature of those interactions. This is the second survey of its kind
commissioned by the monitoring team, and it follows a similar survey conducted in August 2013
that asked many of the same questions to a similar audience.
