One person rushed to the hospital after a shooting Thursday night in the parking lot at 23rd and Jackson.
Seattle Police and Seattle Fire were called to the parking lot on the northeast corner of the intersection just after 8:30 PM to a report of gunfire and at least one vehicle speeding from the scene.
UPDATE 9:54 AM: SPD says the victim died, a 21-year-old man, died.
Police previously reported that the victim was driven by private vehicle and arrived at Harborview minutes later.
The parking lot for a collection of businesses including the neighborhood’s AutoZone and Starbucks was taped off as police interviewed witnesses and collected evidence. At least one shell casing was recovered according to East Precinct radio updates.
The lot owned by developer Vulcan was also the scene of a shootout in April that injured four people including a child.
SPD is asking anyone with information about Thursday’s shooting to call the tip line at 206-233-5000.
