SPD also is conducting an investigation after a man and a woman were shot during a gunfight in the city’s Yesler Terrace neighborhood Saturday morning, a separate blog post on the department’s SPD Blotter explains.

Officers responded to multiple 911 calls at 5:01 a.m. reporting that shots fired and vehicles speeding away near 12th Avenue South and South Main Street.

The officers who arrived at the scene found evidence of a shootout including various calibers of shell casings, blood, multiple vehicles and a building struck by gunshots, the SPD Blotter post states.

While investigating, two victims, a man and a woman both in their 20s, were brought to the emergency room at Harborview Medical Center suffering from gunshot wounds.

According to the the SPD Blotter post, members of the department went on to determine that two groups of people were shooting at each other with rifles and handguns on South Main Street from Borren Avenue South to the east side of the Yesler Terrace Hillclimb.

What led to the shooting remains under investigation and no suspects have yet been taken into custody, SPD reported. The department did say a vehicle was seized as evidence.
