LETTER: Gregory Heights Resident Concerned About Gunshots
On Sunday morning, July 11th, at 2:20AM 6 gunshots were fired in the area of Gregory Heights elementary. They were heard by myself and my neighbors who called police. The next day I found a bullet on my back deck. My neighbor verified it was a 9mm bullet/gun and must have been shot into the air to land without lodging into anything.
I took the bullet to the Burien police dept (KC Sherriff Office) and reported it.
We hear shots in this area late at night every few months or so. Now that a bullet has been found a few feet from our door it is quite disconcerting as it means someone is firing actual bullets at or around random houses.
The police will not be doing anything about it, so I wanted to report it through media.
We live within 2 blocks of Gregory Heights elementary but wish to remain unidentified for safety reasons. We have a small child.
Maybe you can pass the info along or report it in the crime section.
