SPD: Only one shooter in double shooting on Beacon Hill

Seattle police now say there was only one shooter Thursday night when two men were shot in a quiet Beacon Hill neighborhood.

According to police, a 43-year-old man first shot another man with whom he’d been arguing, then shot himself.

That suspect died from his injuries at Harborview Medical Center not long afterward, police say in their online blog.

The other man is expected to make a complete recovery, police say.

The shooting took place in a normally quiet and safe residential neighborhood, police said Thursday night.
