Seattle police said a man was shot in the leg Monday by crossfire near a bus stop in Capitol Hill.
The incident happened near the corner of 15th Avenue and East Union Street, according to an Seattle Police blotter post. Emergency dispatchers received a call reporting it at 1:48 p.m., according to the fire-department dispatch log.
The Seattle Police Department said it thinks a blue Dodge slowly approached two young men walking near a bus stop, and someone inside shot first. At least one of the two men on foot shot back. All fled before police arrived.
