2 men shot in South Seattle home

Two men were wounded this morning when someone fired several gunshots into a house in South Seattle.

Police responded to the home in the 5600 block of South Leo Street around 2:10 a.m. and found a 19-year-old man with a grazing wound. The wounded man was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Police were called back to the same house about an hour and a half later when they learned that a second victim, a 21-year-old man, had been wounded in the same shooting but hid when police responded the first time. Police said the man believed he was wanted on a warrant.

That man was also taken to Harborview, with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Police believe the gunman walked up to the rear of the house and opened fire and then fled.
