There is not points to locate on the map Seattle homicide detectives shot a man in Belltown they suspect was involved in the stabbing death Saturday of an elderly worker at a storage facility in Interbay.

Officers closed off Fourth Avenue from Cedar Street south to Vine Street following the shooting just after 2:30 p.m. and encircled the intersection of Fourth and Cedar with crime-scene tape.

Seattle Police spokesman Mark Jamieson said that two homicide detectives had been tailing the man, saying he had been using credit cards belonging to the man who was found unconscious in the Interbay storage facility with a stab wound in his neck. That man later died.

Nearly a dozen SPD squad cars and two unmarked cars were at the scene of the Belltown shooting.

“I heard a yell and then two quick gunshots” and police were at the scene immediately, said Douglas Enstone, 59, a Belltown resident who was walking his dog in the neighborhood.

Witnesses said the man who was shot was taken away in an ambulance. His name and condition were not immediately available.
