Sunday shootings: One at park, another hits an occupied home

Two were injured at Crossroads park incident.

Bellevue police are investigating two shootings that happened within hours of each other over the weekend on Sunday, June 23.

The first happened at Crossroads Park early Sunday morning. Police learned of the shooting after two people with gunshot wounds showed up at Overlake Hospital just after midnight.

The victims, 18 and 20, told investigators they were sitting in their car at the park when another car pulled up. They began yelling at each other and the dispute escalated to physical violence.

The victims had wounds on their lower extremities, said Meeghan Black, spokeswoman for the Bellevue Police Department.

A second shooting happened at 1:30 a.m., in the 100 block of 109th Avenue Southeast, when someone opened fire on a home while two people were sleeping.

Bellevue police managed to safely get the adults out from the home and confirmed that an unknown suspect had shot at the home multiple times. There were no injuries as a result of that shooting.

Black said detectives are actively investigating both incidents, continuing to follow leads, but at this point there are no suspects for either incident. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit a tip online.
