Shots heard overnight? And other reports from the neighborhood

Update April 10: A different neighbor emails :

Thought I’d let the blog folks know our home on 15th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 97th Street was burglarized during the daytime hours on Tuesday, 4/9.  The usual mode was used – the thieves kicked out a back entrance door window.  They ransacked the house and stole jewelry and electronics.

Thank you to the SPD officers who responded and made the report


Early this morning a neighbor emailed:

Any idea what the gun shots were about, at 5:22 this morning? Three rang out, sounding like they were near the bridge on 15th. We called it in, as did others, according to 911. Thanks.

We don’t exactly know what that was, and neither does the Seattle Police Department.

The police incident map shows a “noise disturbance” at 5:41 a.m. at 12th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 112th Street, near the area in question, which would be 15th Avenue Northeast at about Northeast 104th Street.

A police spokesman said that report did come in as “shots fired,” but that officers were unable to pinpoint the source.

The incident map also shows a “trespass” at 5:40 a.m. at Roosevelt Way Northeast and Northeast Northgate Way and an accident investigation at Roosevelt and Northeast 112th Street at 3:50 a.m.

There was also a DUI arrest made overnight at 15th and Northeast 91st Street. It involved a collision between two cars about 9:10 p.m. No one was injured, the spokesman said, but the driver of one car was taken into custody on suspicion of intoxication.

We also heard, on Friday, from another neighbor that a package had been stolen, and a neighbor’s car apparently broken into but nothing stolen, at Roosevelt and Northeast 102nd Street.

A look at the police report map since our last post shows three cars prowled in the neighborhood and six vehicles stolen. It also shows one additional home burglary, on April 2nd in the 900 block of Northeast 92nd Street.
