Seattle Police say they are looking for the perpetrator who took a shot at E Olive Way’s Amante Pizza and Pasta just after midnight Sunday morning. The initial report according to police radio chatter was of a BB gun attack on the restaurant flanking the western border of Capitol Hill well known for its large, flashing sign offering specials, the time of day and the temperature. The SPD blotter report, below, says nobody was hurt but doesn’t specify what type of gun was used and apparently nobody heard or saw the shooter.
