Just after 7:00 pm Monday, South Precinct officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired inside the park.  Callers informed 911 that several people had been struck by gunfire.

Officers arrived and secured the scene.  An adult woman, who had been sitting in the backseat of a parked car inside the park holding her 10-month-old child, was struck by gunfire, as was the child.  Both victims were transported to Harborview Medical Center.

A third victim, a juvenile, was also struck during the shooting but the injuries are not life-threatening.

Detectives spoke with several witnesses at the scene. According to witnesses, two groups of individuals began shooting at one another in the parking lot of the park when the victims were struck.  There are no suspect descriptions at this time.

This remains an active and on-going investigation. The information is preliminary, and is subject to change.  Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to contact the Seattle Police Department.
