Early morning shooting in Chinatown International District leaves one dead – KIRO 7 News Seattle


SEATTLE — Seattle detectives are investigating a fatal shooting early Sunday morning in the Chinatown International District neighborhood.

Shortly after 4:30 a.m., 911 received a report of a shooting in the 500 block of 8th Avenue South.

Police officers arrived at the scene and found a 35-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds.

Officers provided aid until the Seattle Fire Department arrived. However, despite their efforts, the man died from his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

KIRO 7 spoke to neighboring businesses who saw investigators hours after the fact. Derek O’Bryan with Table Top Village says the CID is a great place to be, but it is heartbreaking to hear of more gun violence.

“It’s unfortunate. Especially for a store like us because we really care for the kids,” O’Bryan said.

Several people off camera echoed the same sentiment to our crews at the scene. Some feel that gun violence continues to get worse in Seattle, but some like O’Bryan feel it will take a group effort to truly combat the issue.

“I don’t think you can seize it completely, right? But there are things we can do to make it safer and make things more accessible for people to come and feel safe about going anywhere, right?” O’Bryan said.

The circumstances that led to the shooting are not known. Detectives from the Homicide Unit are working to determine what happened.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Seattle Police Department Violent Crimes Tip Line at (206) 233-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
