UPDATE: A man is dead after being shot in Seattle’s Ravenna Park early this morning.

The victim, who is between 40 and 50 years old, died at Harborview Medical Center. He was shot in the side, said police spokeswoman Renee Witt.

One man has been arrested in connection with the shooting and police are searching for other possible suspects. Witnesses told police three people argued with the victim just before the shooting. One witness recognized the shooter, police said.

Police were searching for three possible suspects and caught the one. Details of the arrest weren’t immediately available.

Earlier this year, a man and woman were beaten with a baseball bat in Ravenna Park.

A neighbor called 911 after hearing cries for help about 3:30 a.m. Police found a 41-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman with injuries to their heads and other parts of their bodies.

They said they were attacked by two men and beaten by one with a baseball bat. The attack followed an earlier dispute with the man.

Seattle police say nine people were killed by gunfire in the city in the first two months of the year.
