Police disperse party with alleged gang affiliations

From Sgt. Katie Larson, Shoreline Police

On March 6 at about 12:30 am, Shoreline Police responded to a call about a fight (Ed. in the vicinity of 12th NE). The reporting party said that 20+ subjects, male and female, were involved and that cars were seen speeding up and down the street. When the first officer arrived, the majority of subjects had dispersed. Officers contacted two subjects who said they were in the area looking for a party. These two have had prior contact with law enforcement and claim a gang affiliation.

The police were contacted approximately one hour later for a noise complaint. Officers responded to a residence about one block away from the incident described above. As they walked towards the house they heard yelling and loud music. At one point, they heard someone shouting that the “cops” are here. Two males walked out the front door and asked the Officers to help them “kick everyone out of the home.” There were approximately 50-60 people inside and some of them began pouring out of the front and back doors, some yelling at the officers.

One of the participants told the officers that there were multiple “gang members” at the party and that earlier a fight had erupted between two gang members and that he heard there might be retaliation. The police made one arrest for a non-related matter.
