Man arrested after drive-by shooting on First Hill

Seattle police have arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with a drive-by shooting on First Hill early this morning.

Police said the 2 a.m. shooting stemmed from some sort of disagreement between the suspect and intended victim, although details weren’t immediately clear. The disagreement may have resulted after one of the men insulted the other man’s girlfriend, police said.

Witnesses reported hearing a man yell, “I’m going to kill you!” then fire about three gunshots near the IHOP restaurant on East Madison Street. The intended target of the gunfire reportedly ran into the pancake house, said he had been shot at and hid in an employee supply closet, police said.

A patrol officer on Capitol Hill heard the gunfire and was directed by witnesses to the IHOP.

While driving to the IHOP,  the officer heard on the radio that four men connected with the shooting had left in a silver sedan. A second officer stopped that car and arrested the suspected gunman, police said.
