The condition of a man who was shot in the chest several times Thursday afternoon in Seattle’s Central District improved from critical to serious today, according to Harborview Medical Center.
Frank Brown, who some friends know as Omari, was shot in front of his home on 27th Avenue between East Columbia Street and East Cherry Street just after 4 p.m. The shooter and victim may have known each other, according to Seattle Police Department Capt. Ron Wilson.
The man witnesses say fired six to 10 shots at Brown is still at large, according to police. He’s described as a black male, mid-20s to early 30s, 5-foot-7 and heavy set. Though the suspect initially fled on foot, Wilson said some witnesses said they saw a silver, gold or tan mid-90s Ford sedan speed off from near the shooting scene.
Police spokesman Jeff Kappel said there were no updates today on what may have caused the altercation that preceded the shooting or on who the suspect may be.
