Man arrested after woman found shot in Roxhill parking lot

SEATTLE — A woman who was shot is in the hospital after she was found inside a car in a parking lot in the Roxhill neighborhood early Thursday.

At 12:41 a.m., Seattle police were called to a shooting near 27th Avenue Southwest and Southwest Roxbury Street.

Officers arrived to find a woman with several gunshot wounds in a car in a Safeway parking lot on the edge of Roxhill and White Center, according to Seattle police.

Police began giving the victim first aid until Seattle Fire Department medics arrived and took the 35-year-old woman to Harborview Medical Center, where she is in serious condition.

Investigators said they found evidence that the shooting happened in the 9400 block of 27th Avenue Southwest.

“I don’t see or hear about a lot of violence in this area here, so to hear about a woman that got shot today is really surprising,” said neighbor Briana Knight.

Meanwhile, a King County sheriff’s deputy spoke with a man nearby who said he was present at the shooting. The man turned over a gun, and police took him into custody.

Shortly after, another gunshot victim arrived at Harborview, this time in a private vehicle.

Police are working to determine if that victim was involved in the earlier incident.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Seattle police violent crimes tip line at 206-233-5000.
