UPDATE: Navy says sailor killed in Seattle shooting

 

Gregory Wayne Anderson Jr.

The Navy says a man shot and killed in Seattle last weekend was a sailor.

Petty Officer Third Class Gregory Wayne Anderson Jr., 25, of Fresno, Texas, was shot Sunday, according to a news release from the Navy. Anderson, an aviation ordnanceman, was assigned to the USS Nimitz, an aircraft carrier completing a yearlong maintenance period in Bremerton.

Anderson was fatally shot and two other men were injured in a fight that broke out about 2 a.m. Sunday in the 2900 block of First Avenue South in Seattle. The three men were apparently part of a chaotic crowd that had emptied from a nearby nightclub, according to Seattle police.

Anderson died at Harborview Medical Center on Sunday evening. The other two men suffered minor injuries, primarily bruises and scrapes on their heads.

Police said witnesses “were less than forthcoming with investigating officers.”
