Pike QFC shooting report released, no arrests made

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

No arrests have been made by Seattle Police in the ongoing investigation into the early morning November 22 drive-by shooting that resulted in four people suffering gunshot wounds and a fifth person injured by flying glass outside of the Harvard Market / Broadway and East Pike Street QFC.

The police report from the incident was released to the public on Wednesday. Although no details have emerged about the alleged argument that the shooter was involved in before the drive-by occurred, the report does offer a look into what police encountered when they responded to hearing the gunshots early that morning.

SPD Officers Shepard and Akiyama were investigating a disturbance call on the corner of 10th Avenue and East Pike Street when Shepard reports that he heard 'Ten to fifteen shots fired in rapid succession in the area of Broadway and East Pike Street.'

The two officers ran towards the gunfire and Shepard wrote in the report that they determined the crime scene was at the QFC because there 'was a victim lying on the sidewalk in front of the doors at the Broadway entrance.'

Officers stayed with the victim as Shepard and Akiyama went up the stairs on the Broadway side of the QFC to the back parking lot to further secure the scene. 'We did not know if there were more victims upstairs, and a witness downstairs was pointing up toward the parking lot as if the suspects had gone that way,' he said.

While the officers were in the Bartell's parking lot 'a second victim walked up the stairs and sat down near the elevators.'

According to the report the victim, who had not realized that he had been shot at first, suffered a single gunshot after being shot while he was standing in front of the QFC at the Broadway entrance. Police say the victim never saw who shot him.

A witness told police that the suspect vehicle was 'possibly a silver, four door [redacted] (unknown year) with damage to the driver side, side view mirror (mirror hanging from the door).'

The witness stated the driver was a light skinned black male and the passenger that was shooting out of the front passenger side window was a light skinned black male with a full beard. Another witness however, said that a black female was driving the vehicle and that the black male passenger that was shooting out of the front passenger window had a goatee.

Also announced that the weekend, the normally 24-hour Harvard Market QFC will start closing its doors during weekend nights as part of an ongoing effort to address security concerns on the corner of Broadway and E. Pike, a company spokesperson told Seattle Gay News. A sign was posted on the store's front door notifying customers that it would close from 1 a.m. - 4 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

'Since that (timeframe) is when there are a lot of people coming out of the bars in the area, we determined that it might help eliminate a gathering space if we closed the store during that time,' said Fred Meyer/QFC spokesperson Melinda Merrill.

Merrill says the new hours of operation are not a direct result of the shooting, but part of an ongoing analysis of the store's security procedures.

Additionally announced this week, the president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild has gone to the media alleging a cover-up of a staffing study that shows SPD needs to hire 300-400 more officers and that Seattle is currently under-policed for a city of its size.

In an update on the guild's Facebook page, Ron Smith wrote, 'The City of Seattle has a moral obligation to safely staff the patrol ranks of SPD. Sadly this isn't the case. We will be turning up the heat higher on those who the responsibility falls upon their feet.'
