On May 23, Kirkland officers were dispatched to reports of shots fired in the Finn Hill neighborhood, according to police.

At about 8:50 p.m. in the 8700 block of Northeast 137th Street, two suspects were seen in a gold Chevrolet Cruze — or similar type of car — with dark tinted windows, witnesses told officers. They said the passenger fired two shots into the air, just before the vehicle sped away eastbound through the neighborhood.

Police collected evidence from the scene and conducted a canvas of the neighborhood, but based on what they were told by witnesses, they do not believe the shots were random and not directed toward a person.

Currently detectives are working to contact anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident, who may have seen or have any details of the events.

The car and suspects have not been identified and remain outstanding.

Anyone with information that could assist Kirkland police with the investigation efforts is asked to contact the Kirkland Police Department at 425-577-5656.
