At 12:09 a.m., police responded to 5th Avenue South and South Michigan Street for reports of a person shot. Officers arrived and found two men in a vehicle with fatal gunshot wounds. EMT-trained officers and Seattle Fire Department medics determined life saving measures were not feasible and SFD medics declared both men deceased at the scene.
