Seattle Police say a man was shot at The Carwash Palace at Northwest 85th Street and 8th Avenue NW Sunday morning.

From the SPD Blotter:

On 5/20/12, shortly after 9:00 a.m., officers responded to a report of a shooting at 85th and 8th NW. Officers located a male in his 40′s with a gunshot wound to his upper body. Seattle Fire responded and treated the man on scene. He was then transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses reported that the victim was sitting in his car at a carwash at 85th and 8th NW. An unknown race male got into the victim’s vehicle and an argument ensued. The witness then heard a “pop”. The suspect fled with an accomplice in a gold colored late 90’s Honda Accord eastbound in the alley south of NW 85th Street. Both suspects were described as non-Caucasian.

Information gathered at the scene indicates that this is not a random act. This is an open and active investigation.
