An early morning confrontation between a woman’s past suitors ended with one man shot in the arm.

Before 2 AM an angry ex-boyfriend found his former girlfriend with another ex-beau at 11 Ave and Pike Street on Capitol Hill. The confrontation escalated to the point where the incensed ex-boyfriend pulled out a gun and fired multiple rounds, striking the victim in the arm.

Medics transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers are collecting evidence at the scene and speaking with the involved parties.

Police from multiple agencies are coordinating in their search for the 24-year-old suspect.
