While many of the details surrounding the shooting are still unclear, Seattle Police (SPD) officers responding to the scene learned the victim is a friend of the owner of the business the suspects were targeting.

“Officers arrived in the 3500 block of Rainier Avenue South and located a male with a gunshot wound,” SPD stated in a release. “Officers provided first aid until Seattle Fire Department personnel arrived.”

The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center and, as of 4:30 a.m., is in stable condition.

Immediately after the shooting, three subjects turned themselves into the police.

“It is unusual in such a short time between the incident occurring to have individuals turn themselves in at a precinct,” SPD Staff Sgt. Shawn Weismiller told KIRO Newsradio. “Those subjects are being interviewed by our detectives and our detectives are trying to piece together details that led up to the shooting.”
