A man was shot and critically injured in the University District early Saturday morning, but Seattle police learned little from people near the scene.
At just before 2 a.m. officers on patrol near 12th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 42nd Street heard gunshots. A 911 call came in reporting someone had been hit by gunfire.
Officers found “numerous” people in the area, including a man with a gunshot wound to his chest. Medics transported him to Harborview Medical Center.
Officers were able to track down one witness by phone who agreed to return to the scene. He said he saw shots fired, but was trying to get out of the area and didn’t see more.
The motive for the shooting was unknown.
