Man fatally shot in downtown Seattle
A 35-year-old man was shot and killed downtown Friday night during an argument.
The man was walking with a woman on the sidewalk along Pine Street near 2nd Avenue about 10:45 p.m. when a man standing near a parked car made a comment to the woman that started an argument among the three, said Seattle police Capt. Richard Belshay.
During the argument, the man near the car opened his trunk, pulled out a rifle and fired several shots, striking the other man at least once in the face, Belshay said. The man was dead at the scene.
A witness to the argument, who ran as shots were fired, was about a block away before he realized he had been shot in the leg, Belshay said. The 37-year-old man was taken to Harborview Medical Center with a non-life-threatening wound.
Police found the suspected shooter hiding in a Dumpster about two blocks away and arrested him, Belshay said. The identities of those involved weren't released late Friday.
A version of this item incorrectly labeled the location of a fatal shooting as Belltown. The shooting was just south of Belltown in downtown Seattle.
