Fatal Shooting on Cherry

policeman-cartoonWhat a tragedy.  Yesterday just after 4:30 PM, a Madrona man was innocently driving his parents, who had just flown into Seattle, and his two kids (7 and 4) out of town for the Memorial Weekend when they got caught in the crossfire of gun shots across Cherry Street.  The Madrona man, in his 40’s, was fatally shot as he drove his white Volkswagen Van westbound on Cherry just past Marin Luther King Jr Way.  No one else in the car was physically injured.  Two to three suspects were said to flee on foot and have not been apprehended.

Tougo Coffee Co is putting together a fund for the family. They will offer to the family all monies earned after operating expenses today.
