33rd Avenue Shooting

Posted on 19th April 2013 at 16:30

A 32 year-old man is listed in satisfactory condition at St. John Medical Center, recovering from two gunshot wounds that he received last night outside of some apartments on 33rd Avenue. Longview Police say that they’re still working to put together the details of the incident; around 12:30 this morning, a woman called from the area of the Soundview Apartments, saying that a man may have been shot in the alley behind the building. Officers arrived and found a blood trail on the ground; a few minutes later, a call came in from St. John, stating that a man with gunshot wounds to his shoulder and bicep was in the Emergency Department. That man was eventually admitted, while the effort to find the suspect continues. Police say that they think that the suspect and victim knew each other in some way, and got into a dispute that escalated into gunfire. The original 911 caller say that the suspect may have taken off in a gold Chrysler minivan, possibly driven by a woman. The investigation continues.
