I was awoken this morning (3/14/2014) at 4:07 AM with a “POP!…POP POP POP POP POP!” About a half minute later I looked out my window and saw a police car parked at the Genesee Park car lot tear out of there and head up 42nd Ave. S.. According to the Seattle.gov “My Neighborhood Map,” it was a drive-by shooting that took place at 47th Ave. S. and S. Hudson St., which is only a few blocks from my home. Five bullets flying into a house IS a big deal. Why isn’t this crime being reported by any of the local media? What is going on in the house that was shot at that would make it a target? It would be a huge comfort if the Post could get a comment from the SPD so that neighbors will know if this is the beginning of a gang-related free-for-all in the Genesee Park neighborhood
