Man shot during fight disturbance


Fight disturbance led to shooting at homeless encampment. On February 22, 2014, just shortly before 12:00 a.m.  the 50-yr-old victim was involved in a fight disturbance with three other males in a homeless encampment under the Yesler overpass on 4th Ave at Terrace St.

The victim was striking a subject using a 2X2 board when a reportedly uninvolved male approached and shot him.  The suspect fled the scene on foot.  The victim walked a few feet and collapsed on some bedding in the encampment on the west side of the street.

Seattle Fire responded and transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center with critical injuries.

Homicide and CSI responded and processed the scene.
