Seattle homicide detectives are investigating after a man was shot and killed near the Rainier Beach neighborhood Thursday afternoon.

Officers arrived within two minutes of the first 911 call reporting a shooting near Rainier Avenue South and South Fisher Place at 2:15 p.m. and found the man lying on the ground, according to the Seattle Police Department blotter. He died at the scene, police said.
