(Seattle Times) – Five people were shot outside a convenience store in downtown Seattle during an anti-Trump rally on Wednesday night, and the shooter remains at large.
Gunshots were reported shortly before 7 p.m. outside the 7-Eleven store on Third Avenue between Pike and Pine streets, near a major bus stop.
Witnesses said some people were arguing when the gunman began to walk away, and then turned around and fired into the crowd. At least one victim likely was a bystander, Seattle police Assistant Chief Robert Merner said.
Two male victims were in critical condition in the ICU as of 10:30 p.m., according to hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg.
Two other males and a female had improved from serious to satisfactory condition by that time.
The five victims range in age from 20s to 50s and had gunshot wounds to their legs, chest and neck.
Police provided no other details on the shooter. Continue Reading
