SPD: 2 men wounded in Aurora Avenue motel shooting

From the SPD Blotter:

Detectives are investigating after two men were wounded Wednesday morning in a shooting at an Aurora Motel.

Several witnesses called 911 around 2:30 AM and reported a hearing gunfire near the Georgian Motel in the 8800 block of Aurora Avenue North.

Officers arrived, learned a vehicle had sped away from the scene, and found shell casings outside the motel. They were unable to find any victims.

About 10 minutes later, police received another call from the two victims of the shooting, who directed officers to a parking lot at 4th Avenue and Virginia Street.

There, officers found the victims with a green Buick, which had clearly been struck several times by gunfire.

Police found man sitting in the passenger seat of the Buick suffering from gunshot wounds to his arm and neck. Officers provided the man with medical assistance until Seattle Fire Department medics arrived and transported him to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. A second victim in the incident also sustained minor grazing gunshot wounds, and did not require transport to the hospital.

Gang Unit detectives are investigating the shooting.
