A 17-year old was shot and killed in White Center Wednesday night (March 19) around 10 p.m., according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

“From what we can gather, there was some type of verbal altercation between a group of pedestrians and a group of males in a vehicle near Bartell’s at 15th and Roxbury,” said Sgt. Cindi West. “The suspect was with the group on foot. He fired rounds at the vehicle as it drove away. One round went through the car and struck a rear passenger.”

The victim later died at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

    White Center community take back youre neighborhood. This area has been increasingly worse the last year. I used to be a resident four years ago, I work in the shopping center near this area and all I can say is this neighborhood is declining in safety. The area has cotton worse. People of white center need to rally together and get the bad element out of there!

    ….start by getting rid of DSHS and other elements that coddle these creeps. I had drug/prostituion people living next door to my home, I tried many times contacting social services with documentation, as well as the Secition 8 KCHA, to a deaf ear, as they knew they made a mistake, they even illegally hooked up the electricity! Finally, I hired an attorney who sent a letter to the landlord, and within 2 days the creeps were evicted, albeit with quite a criminal history in the court system!. Something has to be done, Department of Corrections-aka State run agency, and other social services need to be held accountable. We need to ban together and file a class action suit, hit the State in the pocket book, but remember the AG himself has defended a cop kliller. We have to stop this “low income” stigma and the elements associated with this, there are decent people in White Center, let’s ferrat out this crime and corruption, start with the elected officials and hold them accountable, get answers, and keep at it, hit the News Stations, etc. Rhonda, thank you for your insight.
