Good luck finding a place where shootings don’t occur.

I was watching TV around 5pm ish and was wondering why I kept hearing a helicopter flying above.
Out of curiosity I went to this website and this was the first story to pop up. I think I just put two and two together. It’s really scary. I used to ride my bike through that area about 5 nights a week on the way home from work when I lived on Boren. Now I’m on Belmont so I take a slightly different route. Still scary tho. I hope the victim heals up well and is ok. I’m glad we have some good citizens out there in cap hill willing to help a stranger in the time of need.

I own the SUV hit in the parking lot. It appears only 3 shots were fired. One hit victim. One hit my passenger door and lodged inside, which was retrieved by police. Other ricocheted off pavement and hit my passenger rear window.

If I had left work early…. I would have either been in the crossfire…or been sitting in the Durango when it all went down

I would be surprised if the .22 bullet went through the door of an SUV–for the shot that was lodged in the door, did it do anything more than dent the metal?

fwiw, SPD says the gun was likely a .40 or .45 caliber
