Man shot twice stopped near Amazon HQ

The Seattle Times reports that around 3:45 a 42-year old man was shot twice, hit in the shoulder and the hip, somewhere in the 1200 block of 12th Ave S. He was alert and oriented when the medics took him to Harborview. Police offered no further details, however Beacon Hill Neighborhood Watch did mention that the shooter fled westbound and that the nearby school was briefly locked down.

Update: The Rainier Valley Post has a number of differing details on the story: the victim was dropped off at the PacMed with gunshot wounds, not shot there. Also, while known, the victim would not divulge the name of the shooter, planning to “take care of it” himself.

Update 2: Seattle911 has even more details, along with the possibility that the shooting may have occurred in the 5500 block of South Avon Street, and that the school locked-down was Rainier View Elementary.

Update 3: KIRO 7 reports that “eyewitness saw a person lying on the sidewalk near 67th Avenue South and South Bangor Street with a gunshot wound,” and KOMO 4 mentioned that the victim may be linked to one or more of three shootings that occurred across the south end this afternoon.
