The following information was compiled from Renton Police Department incident reports.

A man was in his apartment Nov. 13 when he heard what sounded like a firecracker or firework going off. He then reported hearing his living room window shatter. Upon inspection, he saw the bullet traveled through his window and into the wall where his kitchen counters are.

According to the police report, officers believe the bullet was fired from the parking garage located at 655 South Second Street. Officers were unable to find any witnesses. They were also unable to find any other apartments that suffered any damage.

Upon inspecting surveillance footage, officers saw a car with possibly three people and a white dog inside driving up and down the garage around the time of the shooting. A man and a woman was seen trying to exit the bottom floor of the garage. The woman ran out of the building. The man then tossed a large object into the corner trash can on the first floor. He got into the car and left the scene.

Upon inspection, officers found the man tried to toss away a large white weighing scale.

The video did not show who shot the firearm. Officers believe someone in the car might have been involved in the incident.

There is no further suspect information at this time.

HOUSE BREAK-IN: A man reported to the police his house, located on Vashon Place Northeast, was broken into Nov. 11.

He said his mother-in-law was downstairs and the rest of the family was upstairs at the time of the break in.

She heard the exterior garage door open. She opened the interior garage door quietly when she saw an unknown man rummaging through their car. She yelled for her son-in-law. When he came downstairs and went into the garage, he said he only heard the screeching tires of a car leaving the scene.

He reported both of his cars were rummaged through, one inside the garage and one in the driveway. The suspect got access to the garage through the garage opener from the car in the driveway. Approximately $200 in cash was stolen from one of the cars. The man also said there was a suspicious white pickup truck seen soliciting residents recently. The suspect looked a lot like the driver of the pickup truck.

There is no further suspect information at this time.

LOCK YOUR CARS: A man contacted the police Nov. 13 to report his car was broken into.

The man and his girlfriend went to their grandkids’ house, located on North 39th Street. His vehicle was parked on the driveway. When they were ready to leave, they noticed items were missing. The man said he then remembered the car was not locked.

An iPad and a laptop, both estimated around $2,500, were reported stolen. The man, who worked at a Bellevue school, said his school keys were missing too.

After speaking to a neighbor who had a surveillance camera, they saw a suspect wearing a hoodie in the vehicle.

There is no further suspect information at this time.
