Four people shot, one fatally, near Seattle’s Alki Beach

SEATTLE — One man was killed, and three other people were hurt in a shooting near Alki Beach Monday night.

Seattle police arrived just outside Spud Fish & Chips on Alki Avenue Southwest shortly before midnight and found three men and one woman with gunshot wounds. A citizen was performing CPR on a man when officers arrived. Police took over, trying to save the man, but he died at the scene.  Two of the other victims were transported to Harborview Medical Center.

Police said the shooting stemmed from an argument between two groups of people who did not know one another.  “There were two groups in an argument, and from that argument there were multiple shots that were fired,” Seattle Police Chief Adrian Diaz said.

Police are looking for a suspect.  READ MORE: https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/four-people-shot-one-fatally-near-seattles-alki-beach/6BAGJFS775GVJCJD7CULOKFA3M/

Moreover, humanity lost a piece of its foundation as her spirit was called for another service. She exemplified how a public safety peace officer should conduct themselves. This is a terrible loss to our family and we will never forget her sacrifice, courage, strength and spirit. She was known as our Wonder Woman. It was an honor and privilege to have know her.”

‘She’s all I had:’ Man speaks out after stranger kills his dog in random downtown Seattle attack

A 67-year-old man whose beloved dog was killed in a random attack in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood is speaking out about the experience exclusively to Q13 News.

Police say a man confronted John Hickey as he walked his dog Alice near Courthouse Park on Saturday. The suspect allegedly demanded Hickey’s jacket but backed off when he was threatened with pepper spray by Hickey.

“I heard pounding of feet and I turned around and he was running full speed at us and I didn’t have time to really do anything. I had her on the leash and he came running towards her, knocked me down and he kicked her so hard that she went up in the air and started hemorrhaging,” Hickey explained.

Hickey said as soon as Alice hit the concrete, it was clear she didn’t have much time left. She died in his arms minutes later.  READ MORE: https://www.q13fox.com/news/unacceptable-victim-whose-dog-was-kicked-and-killed-in-seattle-speaks-out-after-suspect-released-from-jail
