Shooting in downtown Burien

by Matt Wendland

Two men who had been drinking at the Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub on S.W. 152nd Street early last Sunday morning were wounded by gunfire while crowds of others were left reeling from what they had just witnessed. Shots rang out and echoed all throughout the neighborhoods near downtown Burien.

Initial reports of a shooting were called into police just after 1:25 a.m. on Sunday, October 19. Within minutes, phone lines were flooded with callers being put on hold while 911 operators listened to each account. Reports came from more than a mile away from the source with some callers unsure if the gunfire was in their neighborhood or somewhere nearby.
