April 25, 2012  |  PI, Violence

As posted on the SPD Blotter:

The Seattle Police Department needs the public’s help in finding the person who indiscriminately opened fire in Pioneer Square Sunday morning, seriously wounding 21-year-old Nicole Westbrook.

Westbrook and her boyfriend were walking home from a comedy club after 2 am on April 22, when a white car rolled past them on 2nd Avenue and Yesler Way. Someone in the car fired several shots out into the street, striking Westbrook in her neck. Patrol officers arrived on scene within 20 seconds and gave Westbrook CPR until medics arrived a short time later. She is currently in critical condition at Harborview.

Go to the SPD blotter to see the surveillance video and to see photos of the suspects.

If you witnessed Sunday’s shooting or have information about the vehicle or suspects involved the incident, please contact the Seattle Police Department’s violent crimes hotline at (206) 233-5000.

Pioneer Square’s community police officer, Officer Chad McLaughlin, emailed me to say that it doesn’t matter how trivial the information seems, but that if anyone has heard even rumors about what happened, that it would be useful to reach out to them.

Here is Officer McLaughlin’s info:
