It's been a scary week in the Central District. Tuesday night Seattle Police responded to three separate shooting incidents. And yesterday, authorities announced that they located a "bloody, bullet-riddled" Volkswagen Jetta parked in front of a Central District home Monday morning - the driver nowhere to be found.

According to police, "the car had five bullet holes along the driver's side, blood on the passenger seat, two shattered windows, and was missing a tire."

The problem is, that's about all that's known at this point.

Police say the car was located as a result of a call they received at approximately 7:30 a.m. Monday morning. Sitting parked in front of a driveway in the proximity of 26th Avenue and E Yesler Way, when police knocked on the door of the home the Jetta was in front of they say initially the man who answered was less than helpful - claiming he knew nothing about the car. When pressed, however, the man later admitted a woman he knows had shown up at his home claiming she'd been shot and chased by another driver. But after divulging that much, the man tightened up and didn't offer police much of anything regarding the woman's identity. Police say they were unable to track the mystery woman down.

However, they were able to spot a trail of debris and fluid that the bullet-riddled car left in its path en-route to its final Central District resting spot. When followed, trail led police to Colman Park.

Conveniently enough, after checking 911 records police discovered that four to six gunshots had been reported in Colman Park roughly eight hours before the Jetta was discovered.

Furthering the mystery, when police contacted the car's registered owner they were told the car had been stolen from south Seattle - only an hour before the Colman Park gunshots were called in.

As of yesterday, Seattle Police say that's where things stand. The car was impounded and the investigation is ongoing.
