Business owner fights off attempted burglary in north Seattle

Seattle Police say at 3:10 am Tuesday, officers responded to an interrupted commercial burglary at a North Seattle business, where the victim says a suspect shot at the victim.

The victim told police he responded to his business after getting a call from his alarm company. When he looked inside the front window of the business he saw a suspect inside. The suspect saw him and bolted for the back of the business.

The victim drove his vehicle behind the business and watched the suspect walk towards an orange Subaru Crosstrek. The victim told police that the suspect noticed him still watching and that’s when he pointed a handgun in the victim’s direction and fired one round. The victim was not hit.

The man got into the Subaru and sped off. The victim followed the suspect for several blocks, but stopped after the suspect got on I-5.
