Detectives Investigating Rainier Beach Drive-By Shooting

Gang unit detectives are investigating after a man was shot in the Rainier Beach neighborhood Wednesday night.

Witnesses began calling 911 just after 8 p.m. after hearing shots fired near Rainier Avenue South and Seward Park Avenue South.  When officers arrived they found a 34-year-old man at a bus stop with a gunshot wound to the leg. Officers provided the man with first aid until Seattle Fire Department medics took him to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

Detectives believe the suspect is a black male who drove away in a black sedan. If you have any information in this case please call the non-emegeny line at (206)625-5011 and request to speak with an officer.
