The man died later at Harborview Medical Center, making his death the 23rd homicide in Seattle this year. That’s more than in all of 2011.
Witnesses told police they saw a silver or gray BMW convertible pull up next to the victim’s car and fire multiple rounds, striking the victim several times. Police are looking for the suspect, who is described as a white male in his late 20’s to 30’s with dark hair.
The shooting took place at the intersection of 15th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 75th Street at around 7:26 p.m, according to the police department’s blog.
