Detectives Investigating After Man Shot Sunday Evening

Detectives are investigating after a man was dropped of at Harborview Medical Center (HMC) with two gunshot wounds Sunday evening.

Officers were called to HMC just before 8 p.m. Sunday by hospital staff when a man was dropped off with two gunshot wounds to the abdomen. The 29-year-old victim was currently undergoing surgery and was unable to answer questions, but a man who dropped off the victim said he picked up the victim in the 1400 block of  South Lane Street and drove him to the hospital.

Officers  investigating a report of shots fired in the same area where the victim was picked up spoke to a witness who reported seeing a man walking out of a nearby wooed area carrying a silver handgun.  The witness described that man as a six foot tall black male wearing a large puffy coat walking towards Jose Rizal park. Officers searched the area but were unable to locate a crime scene or a possible suspect.

Detectives are asking that if you have any information in this case please call the Homicide/Assault tip line (206)233-5000.
