One man was killed, and three other people were hurt in a shooting near Alki Beach Monday night.

Seattle police arrived just outside Spud Fish & Chips on Alki Avenue Southwest shortly before midnight and found three men and one woman with gunshot wounds. A citizen was performing CPR on a man when officers arrived. Police took over, trying to save the man, but he died at the scene.

Two of the other victims were transported to Harborview Medical Center.

Police said the shooting stemmed from an argument between two groups of people who did not know one another.

“There were two groups in an argument, and from that argument there were multiple shots that were fired,” Seattle Police Chief Adrian Diaz said.

Police are looking for a suspect.

Diaz said gun violence has been plaguing the city and the department is looking for a solution.

According to Diaz, there have been more than 220 shootings this year alone.

“This has been an extremely deadly month for us, and we’ve had over 220 shootings and shots fired in this year alone, and we’ve got to figure out ways we can recover guns off the streets, we’ve got to get these guns off the streets, because we can’t have any more victims like this,” said Diaz.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the violent crime tip line at 206-233-5000.
