Homicide investigation in the Central District

On July 26th, at approximately 4:35 AM, an adult male and adult female were in a car that had just pulled up to a residence in the 100 Block of 19th Avenue.  As the man was getting out of the car, he was shot several times in the chest.  He immediately fell to the ground.  The female, seated in the passenger seat, got out of the car and ran about a block east, where she flagged down a passing Seattle Police officer.  She told the officer that her friend had been shot.  The officer immediately responded to the location and called for Seattle Fire Medics.  The victim was deceased at the scene.  Homicide and CSI detectives responded to the scene and are in the process of conducting their investigation.  This information is preliminary and we will update with more information as necessary.  This is an active and ongoing homicide investigation.
