At about 1:12 a.m. Thursday morning (Sept. 19), the King County Sheriff’s Office received reports of multiple shots being fired in the 16700 block of 31st Ave South (map below), just east of International Blvd.

A man in his 30s fled the scene to a nearby bank where he collapsed with at least one gunshot wound.

Another person from the same bullet-ridden car checked himself into a nearby hospital with at least one gunshot wound.

The car the men were in crashed into several parked cars in an apartment parking lot after they had been shot at. The shooters in this case have not been captured and there are not very clear accounts from witnesses.

The man who fled to the bank was transported to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries. The other passenger in the vehicle was driven privately to Highline Medical Center in Burien after he left the scene prior to deputies arriving.

It is not yet known if the shooting was a random act or the people in the car were specifically targeted.

The King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes detectives are investigating this ongoing case.

    Former government housing project Gang Bangers who are now living on section 8 in public apartment buildings.

    These roaches are now everywhere destroying neighborhoods.

    At least before they just used to shoot up the projects, now they are shooting people everywhere.

    SAD.

    • Where on Earth did you come up with such assumptions that the people involved in this shooting are “former government housing project Gang Bangers who are now living on section 8 in public apartment buildings”?

      Nowhere in this article does it say ANYTHING about who these people are, where they are from, why the shooting took place, or the amount of money that the people involved in the shooting live off of.

      From reading this article and comment section, the only person I see that needs to “WAKE UP” is the anonymous, assumptive, prejudice, bigot hiding behind a keyboard.

      That’s why they call it ” McCrackin Heights” East of the old Pac highway has gone from working class to a dumping ground where this will be common place. The Burien version leaving all of Ambaum alone for a minute is the complex on 160th between 1st. Ave and Highline hospital across from Handy Andy’s mini mart. Might as well lump the other one behind Baskin & Robbins in the mix if you want ghetto action.

        EXACTLY! Former Seattle housing project residents have quietly been relocated to cheap apartments in SeaTac, Burien, Tukwila, Des Moines & Kent, bringing the ghetto right to our doorstep. People who think otherwise are blind to the facts. This isn’t a racial thing, its an economic thing. Our former middle class south end neighborhoods are turning into ghettos right before our eyes. The same thing happened to NYC suburbs in the late 80’s. The yuppies kicked all the low lifes out of the city & into the burbs. Get ready for the upcoming crime wave ya’ll…

          On the bright side, this lowers the price of crack, and makes it more convenient for all of us!
