Man dies from injuries in Central District shooting

The 19-year-old man who was shot Friday evening in Seattle’s Central District has died, and the suspects are still at large, Seattle police said early Saturday afternoon.

The man, who was shot in the 2500 block of South Norman Street, was pronounced dead at Harborview Medical Center, police said.

Police said the victim was hanging out with friends in front of a residence when  the suspect walked up to him, shot him several times, then ran to a waiting  light-colored Mercedes-Benz.

Seattle Police officers are looking for a suspect who is thought to be a black male about 5-foot-11 with dreadlocks or braids and wearing a black ski mask.

KING5 said property records show the orange house where the shooting took place was once the home of DeShawn Milliken, the man fatally shot at Bellevue Square’s Munchbar on Christmas Eve.

They do not know if the suspect and victim knew each other, but said the shooting does not appear to have been random.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident, the identities of the parties or the whereabouts of the suspects to call 911 or the Seattle Police Homicide Tip Line at (206) 233 5000.
