At about 7 a.m., police responded to multiple calls of shots fired near 27th Avenue South and East Yesler Way.

Officers found several shell casings in the 300 block of 26th Avenue South, police said.

“The victim was not very forthcoming with information or descriptions of the suspects,” the Seattle Police Department blotter said. “It is believed that the victim knew the suspects and that the argument may have been about a woman.”

No suspects were found in the area.

    Judkins Park is a neighborhood. The actual park is blocks from where this occurred. I know this because I saw the shooter run up my block (400 block of 26th) and jump in a getaway vehicle in front of my house. The park had nothing to do with this. Get your facts straight.
