Shooting on the 4th of July

There has some major discussion on Madrona Moms and postings on Madrona NextDoor.  It was a dangerous situation, that we feel the Madrona neighborhood should be aware of.

A woman was driving with 3 children after the fireworks show on the 4th of July. She was traveling towards I-90 when she stopped briefly on Massachusetts near Colman Park to call a friend who was following her and missed the turn. Someone from a group of people celebrating the 4th across the street started shooting at her car. This was completely unprovoked. She immediately drove away, but five bullets hit her car. Three of the bullets penetrated the driver’s side door, shattering the window and created an outline around the driver. There is another bullet hole near the headrest in the rear seat. If any one of the bullets would have been six inches closer it would have hit her or one of the children. Police are investigating.

Stay safe Madrona.
