Man shot in Central District

On January 5th, at approximately 3:13 am, East Precinct officers responded to a call of 3 to 4 shots fired in the area of 15th Avenue and East Alder Street.  Upon arriving, the officers located a 60-year old victim just west of the intersection.  The man had sustained two gunshot wounds to his upper back and through his legs.  The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center, where it was determined that his injuries are non life-threatening.  The victim was able to tell officers that the suspect who shot him was a black male in his teens to early twenties.  Officers conducted an area search but were unable to locate the suspect.  Several shell casings were located in the 200 Block of 15th Avenue, and those were submitted into evidence.
