        It could be drug related, could be over Facebook beef, nobody knows plus its summer, he could of shot him over a girl, but I think it’s road rage he could hit off, words were exchanged, then bang boom boom, God help us all smh…

          The victim is one of my friend’s friends. As I know he was serving in the military for our country for 5 years and never scared of dying. But he now lost one eye and doctor is still uncertain if his other eye will be lost. He has never related to any gangs and has a job as a banker at Chase. God please helps!

      They don’t take all the guns because we have a right to own them. Also – you will never take guns from criminals, even if you somehow managed to convince all the law-abiding to turn theirs in. So even in your perfect world where you take everyone’s guns, the only people who would have them are criminals and cops. Congratulations, you just made things infinitely worse for everyone.

      Well that’s a great idea if you only want criminals to have guns. Can’t take their guns unless you catch them with them. People who use a gun properly should not pay a price for criminals

    I knew this was Martin Luther King area before I even clicked on the story. That neighborhood always has been, still is, and always will be the armpit ghetto of Seattle.

    Another example of Seattle’s “Black Problem”. Of course, the politically correct liberals will continue to deny it.

    The people that live in that area need to call the police and SNITCH on their criminal neighbors. The SPD needs witnesses to come forward when this violence happens. A pregnant teen was shot near this event and did they catch that shooter yet? Someone knows the bad boys and needs to turn them in. All lives matter.
