*Update* to University Village shooting

Officers responded to a 911 call at a Hair Salon of a accidental shooting. Today, just shortly after 12:00 noon officers responded to the University Village Mall on a report that a woman had shot herself. Officers arrived on scene and found a 60- year- old female in an office inside the salon. The woman had a self inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

According to the witnesses, the victim was in her office by herself with the door closed.  Witnesses heard what sounded like a gunshot, and located the victim slumped over in her chair and bleeding from her chest and mouth.  Seattle Fire responded and transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center. The   last update on her condition was that she was currently in surgery.  A handgun with one spent cartridge was found at the scene.

At this time it is unknown if the shooting was accidental or intentional.
