Woman Injured By University District BB Gun Sniper

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee February 25, 2010

It sounds like a lone gunman has been using unsuspecting pedestrians for target practice in the University District.

Last Saturday, a woman told police she was walking up University Way near 52nd St at about 3:45 when she heard the sound of an air gun firing and felt a sharp pain in her right arm.

A police report says the woman told officers she believes someone fired a BB gun at her from an apartment building on the east side of the street.

Offcers examined the wound on her arm, which was "bleeding slightly."

The woman was unable to tell police exactly where the shot came from and declined medical attention.

Police were unable to locate a suspect.
