A 27-year-old man suffered potentially life-threatening injuries after a reported shooting in the Central District Monday afternoon, according to the Seattle Fire Department.
Police responded to the 200 block of 29th Avenue, which is near Powell Barnett Park, around 6:30 p.m. The shooter was no longer at the scene, Seattle Police said in a tweet.
The man had been shot once in the abdomen. Witnesses said he had been shot by people in a light-colored car that drove by, police said.
Medics took the victim to Harborview Medical Center, Seattle Fire spokesman David Cuerpo said in an email. The man’s vitals were stable but his injuries could become life-threatening because of the location of his wound, he said Monday.
As of Tuesday morning, the man was recovering at the hospital, police said. No suspects had been found and the department’s Gang Unit was investigating.
