Officers Investigating Seward Park Shooting

Officers are investigating after a man shot a woman and then killed himself in the Seward Park neighborhood Saturday night.

Officers were dispatched to the 5100 block of South Frontenac Street just after 8 p.m. Saturday for a report of a woman who had been shot.  When officers arrived, they found a woman with a gunshot wound to the leg and began first aid. Officers also discovered the suspect inside the home dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.  Officers believe the suspect was the estranged husband of the victim.

Seattle Fire Department medics transported the woman to Harborview Medical Center where she is being treated for her injuries.

The domestic violence unit will handle all follow-up investigation and will provide updates when they become available.
