Man Shot In Chest and Leg in the South Park Neighborhood

Officers are searching for a suspect after they were approached by a man in South Seattle who had been shot multiple times early Sunday morning.

Officers were sent to 12 South and South Trenton St. for reports of an argument somewhere in the area, but when they arrived they were unable to locate anyone who needed assistance.  Worried residents called back a few minutes later reporting that shots had been fired in the area, but again officers were unable to locate a scene.  Officers remained in the area for nearly 45 minutes searching and speaking with residents when they were approached by the victim.

The victim had gunshot wounds to his chest and leg and collapsed as he made it to officers.  Medics rushed to the scene and stabilized the man before he was transported to Harborview Medical Center with life threatening injuries.

Officers scoured the area, located a possible scene and are working to collect evidence.  Officers continue to speak to neighbors and are working to find any suspects.  Officers are asking anyone with information to please call 911 and speak with them immediately.

This remains an active investigation and details may change.  Updates will be posted to the blotter as we get them.
