Seattle police are investigating after a man was injured in a downtown shooting Monday night.

Officers responded around 8:30 p.m. to a gunshot near 3rd Avenue and Pine Street.

Police found a 48-year-old man on the sidewalk in the 1500 block of 3rd Avenue with a gunshot wound to his face, according to a SPD Blotter post.

He was transported to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

Despite there being a large number of people nearby when the shooting happened, police said few witnesses provided information about what led up to the shooting.
