Detectives Investigating Saturday Afternoon Shooting

Detectives are investigating after a man was shot in the foot Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses began calling 911 just after 1:30 p.m. Saturday to report two men shooting at each other near the intersection of 14 Avenue South and South Jackson Street.

Officers flooded the area and found one of the suspects two blocks from where the shooting occured.  The man had an obvious gunshot wound to the left foot.

Seattle Fire Department Medics took the man to Harborview Medical Center where he is undergoing surgery to repair his foot.

Officers continued to search the area but failed to locate a second suspect.  A K-9 officer searched the area and found a handgun not far from where the injured person was located.

Detectives will continue to investigate and additional details will be provided when they become available.
