Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred at a gas station and convenience store in North Seattle.

The shooting happened at the Arco gas station on Aurora Avenue North and 105th Street shortly before 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to Seattle Police Department (SPD) spokesperson Shawn Weismiller. Officers in the area heard shots being fired and when they arrived, they found a man in his 30s with a fatal gunshot wound.

“The (officers) located a male with a gunshot wound and started CPR until Seattle Fire arrived,” Weismiller told KIRO Newsradio. “Despite life-saving efforts, the male, presumably in his late 30s, was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
