Police Arrest Suspect in Thursday Evening Industrial District Shooting

Police arrested the suspect in a Thursday evening shooting that left a man with a gunshot wound to his mouth.

At 5:25 p.m., an employee at a business near Colorado Avenue South and South Hudson Street called 911 to report a man had just walked onto their property saying he’d been shot in the mouth. The victim told arriving officers he had been in his nearby RV with the suspect, and the two got in an argument about a bicycle. The suspect then shot the victim in the mouth. Seattle Fire Department Medics transported the 41-year-old man to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.

After an extensive search for the suspect, officers found and arrested him nearby less than two hours after the shooting.

The 38-year-old man will be booked into King County Jail for assault in the first degree.
