Officer-involved shooting in Belltown appears unrelated to deadly downtown Seattle shooting

The shooting involved Seattle police and King County Sheriff deputies. No officers or deputies were hurt. The suspect was taken to the hospital.

SEATTLE — Seattle police officers and King County sheriff deputies were involved in a shooting with a suspect Wednesday afternoon. 

The officer-involved shooting happened around 3 p.m. at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Blanchard Street in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood. 

Seattle police officials said officers were conducting a narcotics operation in the area and the suspect hit a squad car with his vehicle. 

Officials said the suspect was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. 

No officers or deputies were hurt, police said. 

This incident appears to be unrelated to a shooting roughly 90 minutes later near 3rd and Pine, which killed 1 person and injured 7 others in downtown Seattle, including a 9-year-old boy.
