Officers Arrest Suspect Following Shooting near Pioneer Square

A woman was shot in the torso following an argument with a man while standing near 2nd Avenue Extension South and South Washington Street tonight.  The victim has been transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment and the suspect was immediately arrested by officers.  A gun used in the shooting was recovered by officers.

Just before 9:00 pm tonight officers were in the area patrolling when they heard two shots fired.  They immediately responded and located the victim still walking around with a gunshot wound.  The suspect had tossed the gun under a parked car and began to walk away , but bicycle patrol officers immediately   took him into custody and recovered the gun.  The suspect was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault.  It is unclear what the argument was about.

Detective will handle the follow up investigation.
