1 injured in shooting in Seattle's Sand Point neighborhood

One man was injured in a shooting near Northeast 123rd Street and Sand Point Way in North Seattle. The suspect hasn't been caught.

SEATTLE — One person was injured in a shooting in the Sand Point neighborhood on Friday afternoon.

The shooting was reported in the 12300 block of Sand Point Way Northeast just after 12:30 p.m., according to Seattle Police Sgt. Randy Huserik.

A man was found on the front porch of his home with multiple gunshot wounds, according to Huserik. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and is undergoing surgery.

Witnesses told police the suspect fled eastbound on foot. A K-9 unit tried to track the suspect but Huserik said the trail went cold.

Police could not provide a description of the suspect.

Detectives believe the shooting was targeted and was not random.

Chuck Kuehn said he was inside his home when the shooting happened and heard six or seven pops. Kuehn said he ran outside the house and saw the man lying on the ground yelling, "I've been shot."

“He was in a lot of pain,” Kuehn said.

Neighbors went over to speak with the man and comfort him before he was taken to the hospital, according to Kuehn.

If anyone has information about the shooting, they should contact Seattle police's tip line at 206-233-5000.
