One Man Shot Following Tenant Dispute at Wallingford Rooming House

A tenant in a Wallingford rooming house was shot and wounded by another tenant, after he reportedly chased after a third tenant while armed with a knife.

While investigators are still on scene gathering details, it appears the incident unfolded shortly after 4:15 PM Tuesday in the 1900 block of North 46th Street when two tenants, who live in separate apartment units, became embroiled in a dispute. One of the three tenants in the home reportedly armed himself with a knife and chased after another tenant. The second tenant went to third tenant for help. The third tenant, who saw the suspect was armed with a knife, armed himself with a handgun and shot the first tenant.

Police have previously responded to the home regarding disputes between tenants.

The man shot in the incident was taken to Harborview with non-life threatening injuries. Investigators are still questioning the other tenants and gathering details at the scene.

Police Seek to ID Man Suspected of Sabotaging Share Bikes

Seattle police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man suspected of sabotaging brake lines on several bike-share bicycles in SODO.

Surveillance video shows the man walking up to several bikes parked at 4th Avenue and South Main Street around 11:45 PM on June 14th. He can be seen manipulating what appears to be a cutting tool around the bikes’ brakes before he walks out of frame.

Police also found surveillance photos from a month earlier, which appear to show the same man damaging a single bike’s brakes near 4th Avenue and Holgate. This incident also occurred in the late evening, around 11:15 PM.

Detectives are also investigating other similar cases in other parts of the city, but have not yet confirmed any linkage between the incidents.

If you recognize the man in the video or have any other information about this case, please contact South Precinct detectives at (206) 386-1855

Man Steals Pizza Delivery Car, Devours Chicken Wings Before Arrest

Police arrested a car thief on Capitol Hill early this morning after he stole a pizza delivery driver’s vehicle, ate some chicken wings, and invoked an obscure (some might say non-existent) federal statute in an attempt to street-lawyer his way out of trouble.

Around 1:30 AM Thursday, police were called to the 1400 block of Broadway by the delivery driver, who told officers he had parked his car across the street from his workplace and returned a short time later to find an empty spot where his car had been parked. He told police he had left his keys in the ignition.

The driver described his car to officers, noting the car had a lighted Domino’s sign on its roof, and police set off into the neighborhood to search for the vehicle.

A short time later, an officer spotted the car driving with its headlights out, going the wrong way on a one-way street near 11th Avenue and East Denny Way.

Police arrested the driver, who claimed the stolen car belonged to a friend of his, and that “he was 80% sure that federal law allowed him to take the car.”

Officers noted he appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine and alcohol, had a suspended license and is legally required to only drive vehicles with an ignition interlock device. The car he stole had no such device.

Officers arrested the 27-year-old man for auto theft and a Department of Corrections warrant, and booked him into the King County Jail.

Police inspected the stolen vehicle and found the suspect appeared to have consumed a box of jalapeno chicken wings. He had also apparently disposed of the car’s Domino’s sign, which was not recovered.
