Seattle Crime: Woman pelted with BBs while riding in Ballard

Someone in a maroon Toyota pickup truck shot a woman riding a bicycle in Ballard with a BB gun April 26, according to Seattle Crime:

A police report says the woman was riding her bike near 63rd and 8th Ave NW around 2:15 p.m. on April 26th when she felt a “sharp pain” in her back, and heard the sound of a BB gun being fired.

When the woman got home, she saw she had two welts on her back which, according to the report, were “obvious pellet wounds.”

    I think that kicking off bike to work month has gotten the natives restless.

    Some lady in an Audi tried to run me down as she caught air going 50 over a crosswalk, all the while flipping me off.

    In front of my little boy’s school, no less.

    I stuck out my tongue at her, just to perpetuate the war on cars.

    People are idiots. What more can I say?

  3. Ha, I got drive-by paintballed about a year ago in Ballard. I was going north on the Burke as it parallels Seaview Ave… they were heading south, shot at me and missed, then turned around and got me from behind.
