SEATTLE -- Seattle police believe a gunman remains on the run after a woman was grazed by a bullet in downtown on Monday afternoon.
   
SWAT officers searched a low-income housing building near the King County courthouse Monday evening as they tried to locate the source of the gunshots. After that search, police spokesman Jeff Kappel told The Seattle Times that no weapon was found and there have been no arrests.
   
Kappel said the injured woman was hit in the hip or leg but did not suffer a life-threatening injury. He said police heard several gunshots and one shot apparently was fired into an office building that houses several county agencies.
   
The injured woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center. She reportedly was shot at Third and Yesler.
   
Pedestrians were cleared from the area and buses were temporarily rerouted.
