UPDATE: Early Morning Shooting in Boulevard Park Leaves 1 Dead, 1 Critical
UPDATE WED. 3/20/13 4:19 p.m.: Sgt. Cindi West sent us the following update on the early morning homicide that happened in nearby Boulevard Park Wednesday morning:
“At this time we have not been able to confirm that there was another vehicle involved. People in the house thought they heard 2 vehicles and a neighbor saw one vehicle in the area but we do not know if this was our victim’s vehicle or another vehicle.
The driver is still at Harborview in critical condition.
We have NO suspect info at this time. All we have is a passenger dead from an apparent gunshot to the head and the driver in Harborview with a gunshot wound.
I know that the driver knew someone in the house but I am not sure who or what their relationship was.
Unknown if gang related.
Detectives told me that the first deputies on the scene did find one weapon in the victim’s vehicle. I have not confirmed if this was the only weapon in the car.”

Sydnee Pardee: this was right by my house! It sounded like they used a 5 shot revolver…their was 25 shots fired altogether with enough time in-between each 5 shots to load the next! I was super scared but after the 5th round the cops came….super sad!
