A 17-year-old and 50-year-old were shot overnight in separate incidents in downtown Seattle.
Shortly before midnight Friday, a 50-year-old man was critically wounded when he was shot during a fight with three others at a Seattle homeless encampment under the Yesler Way overpass, at Fourth Avenue and Terrace Street.
According to the Seattle Police Department, the shooting victim hit a man with a board when another man, uninvolved in the fight, approached and shot him. The victim collapsed on some bedding at the camp. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center.
Police continue to search for the suspect, who left the scene on foot.
In the other shooting, a 17-year-old was shot in the abdomen just before midnight in the 200 block of Pike Street.
Seattle police report a garbage-truck driver saw a group of young males get out of two vehicles in a parking lot. They crossed Pine Street and went around the corner into the 1500 block of Second Avenue. The driver heard a pop, possibly a gunshot a short time later, then saw the group run back around a corner. Police found a .22 caliber shell casing at the scene.
The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center with injuries not considered to be life-threatening.
Police are investigating the shooting.
No arrests have been made in either shooting.
