Seattle Police arrested a man early Saturday morning on Broadway between Pike and Pine streets, who allegedly had been firing a gun near Cal Anderson Park.
Detective Mark Jamieson tells the Capitol Hill Times officers located the man near his car on Broadway and took him into custody, based off a witness description.
Tim Clemans, who runs seattlepublicrecords.org, shared a video with the Capitol Hill Times, and another video posted SPDwatcher on YouTube, where a man can be seen being blocked from leaving in a vehicle on Broadway and then being detained at gunpoint.
Jamieson said a gun was found inside the suspect’s vehicle, which matched shell casings recovered by officers. Clemans said two shell casings were found by the public at a parking garage at Harvard and Pine.
This was the second shots fired incident in as many days in the area.
Officers responded to Broadway and Pike around 1:45 a.m. Friday for a report of several gunshots in the area. SPD Detective Patrick Michaud said of that incident that gang units found several shell casings at Harvard Avenue. No one was reported injured, and witnesses reported seeing people running from the area.
