Man shot in apparent drug deal gone bad in North Seattle

A man was shot in North Seattle early this morning when he apparently refused to hand over marijuana he had, according to police.

The victim, 45, met three other men for a drug deal near North 92nd Street and Woodlawn Avenue North about 1 a.m. One of those men demanded that the victim give him the marijuana. When he didn’t, a gun was pulled and the victim was shot in the chest and arm, police said.

The shooter and the two other men took off. Police are looking for them. The victim drove himself to the hospital. His wounds were not life-threatening.

Police are asking anyone with information about what happened or know the people involved in the incident to call 911 or the Seattle Police Robbery Unit at 206-684-5535. Anonymous tips are welcome.
