Earlier: The owner of Le Merde boutique at 7313 Greenwood Ave. N., is one of the victims of last Thursday’s drive-by shooting in Belltown, according to friends who have started a Go Fund Me account to help pay her medical expenses.
According to Seattle Police, the shooting is being investigated as gang-related, and a suspect has not been arrested.
According to The Seattle Times, someone fired a gun around 10:50 p.m. Thursday outside The Crocodile, which was hosting an all-ages show. One man outside was wounded, while shots went through a window and wounded two women inside.
Friends have set up a Go Fund Me account to help pay her medical bills and support her shop. As of Sunday night, the fund had raised more than $8,000 toward its $12,000 goal.
Update Monday morning: Harborview Spokesperson Susan Gregg tells me she is in satisfactory condition.
