When officers arrived, the victim, a man in his 50’s, was conscious and spoke with officers.

“I was working in my driveway when I heard four or five gunshots,” an eyewitness said. “The people running away do not appear to be involved.”

Medics rushed the man shot to Harborview. His condition has not been released.
