In the second incident, witnesses called 911 around 7:45 pm Saturday to report a fight at Judkins Park. As officers were arriving on that call additional reports of shots fired at 24 Avenue and East Yesler Street began coming in. Officers quickly converged on the area and found a pool of blood but no victim. Minutes later, a 25-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his shoulder arrived at Harborview Medical Center. Gang Unit detectives are investigating both cases and ask anyone with information to please call the Violent Crimes tip line at 206-233-5000.
