1 shot, 1 arrested after fight between ex-suitors in Capitol Hill

A man was arrested after he allegedly shot another man he saw with his ex-girlfriend in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood early Sunday morning, police said.

The 24-year-old man found and confronted his former girlfriend and another ex-boyfriend at 11th Avenue and East Pike Street shortly before 2 a.m., according to the Seattle Police Department.

He pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots, striking the ex-boyfriend in the arm. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect turned himself in to officers at the North Precinct about an hour later, police said. He was booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault. The shooting appears to have been the continuation of an incident in Snohomish County, where the suspect may face additional charges, police said.
