From KOMO News:
According to the Seattle Police Department, two men were arguing at the Glen Hotel, a Low Income Housing Institute building, at 1413 Third Avenue around 10 a.m. when one shot the other.
Via an IM from Ry who noted that this is just a half block south from where we work.

Inspiring confidence in my current locale of employment.
If you reported tomorrow that a Balrog of Morgoth had busted up through the downtown Seattle pavement from underground and smashed a nearby building to bits, devouring the occupants and setting the block on fire, I wouldn’t be terribly surprized.
I would. I’d expect him at least four blocks south.
