Police investigating shooting in South Seattle this morning
A man suffered a minor gunshot wound early this morning in Southeast Seattle.
Officers were called to the area of 32nd Avenue South and South Graham Street shortly after midnight on a report of gunshots, according to police spokeswoman Renee Witt.
In a house near there, they found a man with a minor gunshot wound. Police say the man was shot after getting into an argument with a group of men while he was smoking marijuana at a neighborhood park.
Little is known about the suspects, the victim or the circumstances surrounding the shooting because the wounded man is being “uncooperative” and “hostile,” Witt said.
The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center.
Officers found about 25 shell casings on 32nd Avenue South, just north of South Graham Street. A witness told police they saw three cars leaving the area around the time of the gunfire.
