Clerk at Capitol Hill gas station shot in foot; suspect vehicle found

Update, Noon: Late Friday night, officers located and impounded a 1985 Chevy Caprice used in an earlier robbery and shooting at a Seattle gas station. Two females in the car were detained and questioned by robbery detectives at police headquarters downtown.

The primary suspect(s) remain at large.

Original post: A clerk at the Union 76 gas station in the 900 block of James Street was shot in the foot shortly after 8 Friday night after he and another clerk chased a suspect who walked out with a 12-pack of beer, said Seattle Police.

The injured clerk, 25, was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, said the Seattle Fire Department.

The suspect ran northbound on Terry Street, said police.

Then, near the intersection of Terry and Cherry Streets, the suspect turned around and fired one gunshot at the store clerk, said police.

Police said the suspect got into a waiting vehicle, described as  large, dark-colored, possibly a two-door.

The shooter is described as a male in his late teens to early 20s, last wearing a black jacket, tan pants and a maroon scarf, said police.

Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identities or whereabouts of the suspects or suspect vehicle is asked to call 911 or the Seattle Police Robbery Unit at 206-684-5535.

Anonymous tips are welcome, said police.
