West Seattle home hit by drive-by shooting twice in one week

A home on the 2000 block of S.W. Cloverdale was hit with drive-by gunfire for the second time in six days on March 16. On March 10, the home and a vehicle were fired upon as well. No one has been injured in the shootings and police are looking for information.

Here are the details from Seattle Police:

The Gang Unit is investigating the second shooting in a week at a West Seattle home. This morning at approximately 1:32 a.m., officers were dispatched to a drive-by shooting at a house in the 2000 block of SW Cloverdale St. Upon arrival, they located damage from small caliber rounds in the outer wall of the house.

One bullet fragment was removed from the wall and placed into evidence. The only two people home at the time of the shooting were the parents of the family. There is no suspect information and there were no witnesses to the shooting. The residents of the house claim they have no idea as to why anyone would target their home. This is the second drive-by shooting at this house in a week.

Everyone at the scene tonight denied any gang affiliation, but the stairs leading to the front door were tagged with gang graffiti. There were no reported injuries. The Gang Unit responded and processed the scene.

The investigation continues.
