Detectives are investigating after a 19-year-old woman was shot in the 1000 block of Aurora Avenue North early Monday morning.

Witnesses began calling 911 after they saw a man shoot a woman at a bus stop at North 100 Street and Aurora Avenue North just after 2 am Monday.

Officers arrived and found a woman with a gunshot wound to the head and immediately began first-aid.  Seattle Fire Department Medics transported the woman, who was alert and conscious, to Harborview Medical Center with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses told officers that a black man, wearing dark clothes and a red hat, and the victim were in an argument when the man pulled out a gun and shot the woman.  The witnesses went on to say the suspect may have fled into a nearby motel.

Officers scoured the motel but were unable to locate the suspect. Detectives collected evidence at the scene and will continue to investigate.

If you have any information in this case please call detectives on the tip line at (206)233-5000.
