On 1/12/2019 at 11:29 p.m., Public Safety received a report from an individual that a firearm was discharged at them from a vehicle driving on 21st Ave S near 6th St S. The victim, who is not a student and was not injured, stated they were walking near 6th St S on 21st Ave S when a white vehicle, possibly a Ford compact with tinted windows, was driving north on 21st Ave S when the victim heard 2 gunshots.
