Seattle police arrested two men Friday afternoon in connection with a March 7 shooting in the South Lake Union neighborhood that sent one man to the hospital with a bullet wound to the abdomen.

According to a post on the police department website, police worked with federal law-enforcement officials while investigating the case. Following an undercover operation over the course of several days, police located the two men and made the arrests near Bradner Place South and South Massachusetts Street.

While making the arrests, police found a gun, which they impounded as evidence. Both men were booked into King County Jail on suspicion of unlawful possession of a firearm.

The March 7 shooting was at a gas station in the 600 block of Denny Way. What began as a fight in the parking lot escalated with shots exchanged. Officers responding to a 911 call from the gas-station clerk found the injured man, who was taken to Harborview Medical Center with nonlife-threatening injuries. One gun and several shell casings were found at the shooting scene, police said.

Gang detectives were assigned to the investigation, police said at the time.
