Man shot in Seattle, tells police a gang is angry with him

A 21-year-old who identified himself as a gang member told Seattle Police he was shot in the thigh as he was walking along the 4100 block of South Court Street Saturday.

About 6:30 p.m. police were called to investigate the sound of gunshots and found shell-casings but no suspect. Police were later called to the Swedish Medical Center emergency room where the man was being treated for a gunshot wound.

He told police he was walking when he heard shots, felt pain in his leg and then realized he had been shot and went to the emergency room. He was transferred to Harborview Medical Center.

He told Seattle Gang Unit detectives that there are rival gang members who are angry with him. He said he could not describe a vehicle or suspects.
