(UPDATE) Two Men Shot On Beacon Hill Thursday Night


Detectives now have a clearer picture of what transpired during Thursday’s shooting.

The  43-year-old suspect drove to the 1700 block of South Hanford St. and found the 41-year-old victim standing in the alley.

Detectives believe the two had an argument that quickly escalated until the suspect pulled out a gun and fired multiple rounds, striking the victim. The suspect then turned the gun on himself firing one round.

Police arrived in under a minute to find the suspect on the ground still holding the gun.

Seattle Fire Department Medics were called to the scene and transported both the suspect and victim to the Harborview Medical Center (HMC).

The suspet was declared dead shortly after his arrival at HMC and victim is currently recovering from his wounds and is expected to make a full recovery.
