Police are looking for two suspects after a shooting just before 3 a.m. today, July 11th.

According to police,

The suspects actually parked their truck and approached the victim and several of his friends who were sitting on the raised walkway in the 4700 Block of University Way NE. Suspect #1 is described as a Hispanic male, 20, 5? 7?, stocky, short spiked hair, faint mustache, wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans. He was armed with a black handgun and threatened to kill the victim. He fired one shot at the victim’s feet, but it did not hit him. Suspect #2 is described as a Hispanic male, 20, 5? 6?, 150 pounds, short spiked hair. The first suspect armed with a gun also pointed the gun at one of the other sitting victims. That victim jumped off the wall and fled on foot to a nearby location to call 911. Several shots were fired, and a window to a business was shattered, but there were no injuries. The suspects remain at large.

The truck the suspects were driving is said to be a full size gray pickup with matching canopy, tinted windows, and large front tires. The truck left the scene in an unknown direction. Officers conducted an area search, but did not locate the suspects or the truck. Several spent shell casings were recovered from the scene.
