Police continuing to investigate double shooting downtown

Police homicide and gang detectives continue to investigate the shooting Wednesday night in downtown Seattle that left two people hurt.

Police were called to a report of shots fired near Third Avenue and Pine Street, the hub of shopping, business and transit, at 8:15 p.m. No arrests have been made and police have not provided descriptions of the suspects.

Police spokesman Patrick Michaud said investigators spent Thursday reviewing video surveillance and other evidence collected.

Two gunshot victims were taken to Harborview Medical Center. A 25-year-old man was listed Thursday in critical condition; a 16-year-old boy was in satisfactory condition, said hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg.

Witnesses near Pike Place Market said they heard as many as 20 shots. One woman said she saw 15 to 20 men walking on Pine Street then running away after the gunfire.

Anybody with information is asked contact the SPD Homicide/assault tip line at 206-233-5000.
