Seattle police also are searching for the person who killed Corey E. Trainer, a 22-year-old found shot to death earlier this month in North Seattle.
Trainer's death was the first Seattle shooting homicide since April, according to the medical examiner's office.
Hmm. The P-I itself ran this story on August 6: "Teen shot to death in Seattle."
And this one on September 11: "Homeless man found shot to death near I-5."
I'm not sure why the medical examiner would say that there haven't been any shooting homicides since April. And I really don't know why the reporters and editors would repeat that bullshit claim without checking their own recent papers first.
It's a good thing Amber Campbell at the Rainier Valley Post is keeping track of all the South End shootings for us. I'll be interested in seeing how her records match up with the police/mayor's numbers (which will just be lazily parroted without question by the mainstream media, who won't even bother checking their own archives) at the end of the year.
