Five people were shot outside a convenience store in downtown Seattle Wednesday night, and the shooter remained at large, reports the Seattle Times. Witnesses said people were arguing when the gunman began to walk away, and then turned around and fired into the crowd. At least one victim likely was a bystander, said Assistant Police Chief Robert Merner. Two of the victims were in critical condition.
Sharon Keith, manager of a 7-Eleven store, heard what “sounded like firecrackers” and told everyone to get down. She then locked the doors and looked outside. “I saw multiple people down, bleeding,” she said. There was additional police presence because of an anti-Trump rally. Merner said the shooting was “not related to the protest at all. It appears to be some type of personal argument.”
