Man Fires Shotgun At Cars In Burien Tuesday Morning; No Injuries
According to Sgt. John Urquhart of the King County Sheriff’s Department, a shotgun-toting man fired at cars in Burien Tuesday morning (March 23) near the intersection of South 128th and 1st Ave South.
There were no injuries.
Urquhart said that a man carrying a shotgun fired at least one round at passing cars around 5am Tuesday. It doesnâ€™t appear any cars were hit and no one was injured. Deputies arrested the man.
The Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call from a driver who said someone pointed a gun at him as he drove past the intersection of S. 128th and 1st Ave South.
Deputies and Burien police went to the intersection and saw a man holding what appeared to be a long-barreled gun. Before the officers could act, cars drove by and they heard the suspect fire a round in the direction of the passing cars.
1st Ave South was shut down and officers approached the suspect and ordered him to drop his weapon. Wisely, he complied. The 54 year-old Burien man was taken into custody.
A 12 gauge shotgun, still loaded with three rounds of buckshot, was seized.
The suspect was booked in to the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault.
The man did not provide a motive for his actions.
