Another late-October shooting incident sent one man to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries early Friday morning.
Police were called to a residence in the 100 block of 26th Ave S near E Yesler just after 2:30 AM to the report of a person shot. Arriving officers located the victim inside a nearby house and found shell casings near the shooting scene outside the residence.
Witnesses told police a red SUV was seen leaving the area following the shooting but the vehicle could not be located. Police say there was an argument reported at the location earlier in the night.
The victim suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his lower right hip and was taken to Harborview.
SPD says its gang unit is investigating.
The shooting follows a small wave of gun violence in the area of the Central District south of Garfield including a man shot in the hand last week and no injuries reported in a shootout near the high school the previous day.
