Detectives Investigating Monday Evening Beacon Hill Shooting

Gang Unit Detectives are investigating after a man was shot in the stomach in the Beacon Hill neighborhood Monday evening.

Witnesses began calling 911 just after 5 p.m. to report shots fired at Martin Luther King Way and South Dawson Street.

Patrol officers arrived at the scene and found a man who had been shot in the stomach.  Officers provided first aid until Seattle Fire Department Medics took the man to Harborview Medical Center for further treatment.

Detectives spoke with witnesses who said the victim was walking towards a business in the area when a black sedan drove by and the passenger opened fire striking the victim once.  Witnesses said the suspect vehicle was last seen speeding away northbound.

This remains an active investigation and details may change as additional information is gathered.
