A 21-year-old woman who was injured in a shooting at a party in South Seattle early Sunday died of her injuries.
KING 5 is not identifying the victim because a close relative was out of state and had not been notified as of Sunday night. The victim's younger sister said she was "really selfless and put others before herself." The victim graduated from Ingraham High School in North Seattle and was hoping to attend college to study either international affairs or art. She had two brothers and two sisters.
The victim died at Harborview Medical Center from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Two females, 17 and 18 years old, two 20-year-old men, and a 21-year-old man, were also injured.
John Jones and his dad said hundreds showed up for the Saturday night party in their backyard. It was a mix of friends and acquaintances. They cut the party off at about 1:30. As people were filtering out, they heard some popping.
"These guys just stood there and point blank fired into them," said Drew Jones.
"We heard like 50 gunshots," said Sean Cortez. "It was pretty crazy."
"We saw people just like running and then like maybe 10 minutes later we came out and then I saw my friend and then I see my other friend on a stretcher and it was just horrible, people were just crying and screaming, blood on people's clothes," said Nicole Kieu.
"I'm walking up to the car, trying to make my way home and I just hear several gunshots so I just take off running," said Ashton Leffall."You know there's been a lot of violence around here and you know we just need a solution. I'm tired of being tired. It's time for a solution."
Police say they were called to the house two times Saturday night before the shots were fired. The first time was for a reported domestic violence assault and the second time to investigate a noise complaint.
"We know that at least two people were involved in the shooting, maybe more," said Assistant Chief Nick Metz.
Approximately 20 to 30 shell casings were located at the scene.
"The crime scene extends well over a block," said Metz.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Seattle Police.
