Shooting in Seattle’s Central District sends 2 men to Harborview

A shooting in Seattle’s Central District tonight sent two men to Harborview Medical Center in serious condition.

The Seattle Fire Department says one man in his 20s and another in his 30s were injured in the shooting that happened just before 7 p.m. on the 400 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

Both men — one with a gunshot wound to the buttocks and the other with a wound to the shoulder —  are expected to survive, the Seattle Police Department said.

Several people who live nearby the shooting scene at the parking lot of Quick Pack Food Mart said they had heard three to four shots.

Gang unit detectives at the shooting scene  investigated and towed away a black SUV and an older,  gray Chevrolet Caprice left in the parking lot. A surveillance camera outside the market facing both of the abandoned vehicles may also offer more clues about what happened, but so far detectives said they don’t know what prompted the shooting.

Police also have no description of possible suspects. Detectives ask that anyone with more information about the shooting call 911. Anonymous tips are welcome.
