Double shooting investigation in Rainier Beach

On February 21st, at approximately 8:05 pm, South Precinct officers responded to a report of shooting in the 9400 Block of Rainier Avenue South.  Officers arrived quickly and located two victims, both adult males, with gunshot wounds.  Seattle Fire Department Medics transported both victims to Harborview Medical Center with life threatening injuries. 

Detectives from the Homicide and Assault Unit, Gangs, and CSI all responded and began their investigation and processing of the scene.  It appears that the shooting occurred in the parking lot of a restaurant.  The 9400 Block of Rainier Avenue South is shut down while detectives conduct their investigation, but traffic is being rerouted. 

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or has any information about this case is urged to contact the Seattle Police Department.  This remains an active and on going investigation.
