A man was shot in the buttocks on Thursday night on 32nd Avenue NE near NE 140th Street.
Seattle Police gang detectives are investigating the shooting that happened about 11:15 p.m. on Thursday. Police received a tip that a man was shot and was en-route to Harborview Medical Center.
When detectives found the man at Harborview he said he was “walking near Little Brook Park when someone in a car shot at him, striking him in his rear,” said Seattle Police spokesman Jonah Spangenthal-Lee.
Police said this is the second time that the man has been shot in Lake City in the last two years.
“This time, he told detectives he has no idea why anyone would want to shoot him, as he is working, going to school, and attempting to put his past troubles behind him,” said Spangenthal-Lee.

As part of the Seattle Police Departmentâ€™s plan for community engagement, the public is invited to participate in a facilitated discussion focused on the following five questions:
- What is your top concern about crime and public safety in the disability community?
- What can be done together to create a safer community?
- What is going well with the relationship between the disability community and SPD?
- What needs to improve?
- What steps can we take to keep you engaged in building and creating a safer community?
This is a great opportunity to engage with our North Precinct officers regarding the impact of crime and public safety for some of our most vulnerable populations.
