Seattle police are investigating a double shooting in the Eastlake neighborhood Monday morning that left one person dead and another in the hospital.

It happened just after midnight near a market at Eastlake Avenue East And East Lynn Street.

According to a surviving victim, the driver of a car pulled into an alley and one of the car's three occupants went into the market.

The victim told police that as the driver and other passenger waited, an unknown suspect walked up to the car and fired several shots, striking both occupants.

Police say one of the two men, a male in his 20s, died at the scene. The other male victim was taken to to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. He is also in his 20s.

Police located a car that matched a description given by witnesses and took a number of people into custody. They are still investigating whether the car or the people in custody actually are connected to the shooting.
