Man Shot Shot and Killed In Mount Baker (Updated)

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee September 16, 2010

Update: We've just confirmed that the 18-year-old man shot last night has died. So far we've heard from sources that the victim was targeted in the shooting and that police do not believe this was random.

At least one person was shot at an apartment building in the 2500 block of 29th ave S around 3:00am.

Medics were called in to perform CPR on one person who was taken to Harborview.

Police are looking for two Asian males dressed in dark clothing, driving an older white sedan.

K9 and homicide units have been contacted about the incident.


Here's SPD's release (bolds are mine):

On September 17th at approximately 2:53 a.m. officers responded to reports of shots fired at an apartment building in the 2500 block of 29th Avenue South.  Officers arrived on scene and located an adult male victim (in his late teens to early 20′s) who had sustained at least one gunshot wound to the face.  The victim was inside his ground-floor apartment and appears to have been shot through an open window by suspects who were standing outside. 

SFD medics responded to the scene and subsequently transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.  There were two females in another room of the apartment at the time of the shooting who were not injured. 

The two suspects remain at large.  They are both described as Asian males, 5’7″ to 5’8″, late teens to early 20′s wearing dark clothing and blue jeans.  They fled the scene in a white sedan with a low back end.

Homicide/Assault detectives are responding to the scene to assume control of this active and on-going investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identities or whereabouts of the shooters is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police and refer to this incident.
