Gang Unit Detectives Investigating Sunday Morning Capitol Hill Shooting

Detectives are investigating after a 26-year-old man was shot early Sunday morning in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Witnesses began calling 911 at 2:20 am to report a shooting in the 1200 block of Pine Street. As police flooded the area they received additional information that people were doing CPR on the victim.

Officers found the person who had been shot in the leg and provided first aid until he was taken to Harborview Medical Center by medics.

Detectives with the Gang unit spoke with multiple witnesses who gave conflicting versions of what happened. Detectives are now examining evidence left at the scene to develop a suspect description.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the tip line at (206)233-5000.
