Police are investigating after a man in his “late teens or early 20s” died after being shot in downtown Seattle Wednesday night.
The shooting happened around 7:15 p.m. on the 1500 block of Third Avenue, which is near the intersection of Third Avenue and Pike Street. When officers arrived, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
The one on Sunday was at 3rd and Pine. Pine and Pike are one block apart.
Barb’s nickname of Mug Me Street is appropriate.
Here is a recent video of the street (via Chuck Petras @Chuck_Petras) :
HAPPENING NOW: Just hours after a shooting on 3rd Ave in Downtown Seattle, the insanity has returned. This is the stretch between Pike/Pine St. Open air drug use, sales of all kinds of merch, trash everywhere. How is this allowed?@MayorofSeattle @downtownseattle @SeattlePD pic.twitter.com/UQPmg9krhU
