SEATTLE - Police continued to search Sunday for suspect in the fatal shooting of a teen in the Central District of Seattle.
A 19-year-old man was the victim of a drive-by shooting outside a home. He was rushed to Harborview Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.
Concerned neighbors say the shooting is yet another incident in their area.
I don t know what s going on, said Kendall Murphy, a neighbor.
It s just getting closer and closer to home and now it s two doors down, she said.
Around 7:30 p.m., police officers responded to 911 calls of a shooting in the 2500 block of South Norman Street.
Preliminary reports indicate the victim was shot while he sat in a vehicle parked in front of a home.
Witnesses heard at least 16 shots fired.
They had been waiting for him, they had been driving around prior to it, a group of them, said James, a neighbor.
Crime Scene investigators combed the area Saturday looking for clues as friends and family visited the home.
They ve had a hard going recently, said Wakil Allah, who lives in the area.
Three months ago with what happened at Munchbar, said James.
The house where the 19-year-old was shot is where 30-year-old Deshawn Milliken used to live. He was shot and killed on Christmas Eve inside Bellevue s Munchbar, a nightclub.
Deshawn s sister is also the mother of the victim s one-year-old son.
While police aren t sure if the shootings are connected, they don t think this latest one is random.

I just hope this is the worst of it. I hope it ends here, said James.
