Seattle police are asking for the public’s help in their search for the person who shot a woman early Sunday morning in Pioneer Square.

Shortly after 2 a.m. police heard shots near Second Avenue and Yesler Way. They found a woman lying on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to her neck.

Police and paramedics performed CPR on the woman, who was taken to Harborview Medical Center with what were described as life-threatening injuries.

Police said today that the victim and her boyfriend had just left a comedy club and were walking back to the victim’s apartment when the shooting occurred.

Detectives believe a smaller, light-colored vehicle, which was seen fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed, may be connected with the shooting.     

Anyone with information about this shooting or the vehicle is asked to call the Police Department’s homicide hot line at 206-233-5000. Anonymous tips are welcome.
