Napa shooting

Napa Police reported a shooting Thursday night in the 2600 block of Wimbledon Street.

Updated 8/12/22 at 4:18 p.m. Napa Police responded to a shooting in a Wimbledon Street residence late Thursday, found a man suffering from a non-lethal gunshot wound, and arrested a Napa woman on suspicion of carrying out the shooting, according to a department press release issued Friday afternoon. 

Officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 2500 block of Wimbledon Street at roughly 8:10 p.m.; Napa Police issued its advisory to avoid the area at about 9 p.m. on the department’s Facebook page. An investigation into the shooting was underway and there was no ongoing threat to the community, the agency said.

Upon entering a residence there, officers located an adult male suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound at the scene. He was transported to a local hospital. 

At about 12:22 a.m., the officers arrested Monique Blaziek, 50, at the residence, the press release says. Blaziek was later booked into Napa County jail, at 12:47 a.m., on investigation of felony assault with a deadly weapon, domestic battery and child endangerment.

Members of the NPD investigations unit — including a detective specializing in domestic violence — responded to conduct an investigation, the press release says. They learned a child was present in the residence during the shooting and was not harmed. With a search warrant, officers found a loaded firearm, the press release says. 

The department is urging any community member who witnessed the incident, or who has information about it, to contact detective Bill Hernandez at 707-258-7838 or

On the last day of public school in Seattle, local community groups threw a block party for kids in the Rainier Beach neighborhood. The goal was to feed them, keep them entertained and out of trouble. "Part of why we did this, we know that on the last day of school, every year, there's typically an incident, something happening in the neighborhood, right?" said Marty Jackson, executive director of SE Network Safety Net, tells the parents and kids gathered. Seattle doesn't often make national news for gun violence but in 2021, more shots were fired there than in any of the previous five years. A coalition of community groups in the Seattle-area have stepped up their efforts in light of the increased violence. The block party is one of the many actions devoted to violence intervention.
