Sunday morning (May 23), the following question was posted to our Forums by BTB Reader Erik Robbins:

Does anyone know what all the gunshots and Police activity were about in Seahurst (EDITOR’S NOTE: possibly Olde Burien) (Sunday morning) around 2/am??

Being of the curious sort, we forwarded this note onto Sgt. John Urquhart of King County Sheriff’s Department, who replied:

Yes several calls of “shots” heard.  First report at exactly 2:00 AM, including at least a couple of deputies who heard the shots.  Somewhere between six and nine, depending on who you talked to.

We eventually found six casings in all, five in the 1000 block of SW 152nd, and one shell casing in the 1200 block of SW 152nd.  From a handgun.

No injuries and no indication where the bullets landed.

So, shots heard, bullet casings found (see map below), but no real answers.

Anyone else out there hear these gunshots or know what happened?

    Who knows what this was about, but far back in the corner of my mind lurks a conspiracy theory that someone keeps doing this around Burien to keep the Property and Business rents down. My tin hat is made from recycled reynolds aluminum.

    We also heard 4 shots Saturday AM around 3ish as well. They sounded more like down by St Francis to me. But I was sleeping when they woke me up. I also have a friend who lives by Lake Burien park who heard them too.
