Seattle Police Deputy Chief Nick Metz talks to reporters near Cafe Racer, where a gunman opened fire. According to Seattle Police, a man opened fire Wednesday, May 30, 2012 in Seattle coffee shop Cafe Racer in the University District neighborhood, ultimately killing three people and critically injuring two others. Approximately 30 minutes later, police responded to a call of shots fired at in Seattle's First Hill neighborhood, and found a woman shot in the face, who died at the scene. Police discovered that the gunman in both shootings was the same man, after tracking him down in West Seattle, where he shot himself as the authorities closed in. On Wednesday evening, the suspect and the two remaining gunshot victims were alive and receiving treatment at Harborview Medical Center. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
