Earlier: If you heard the helicopters overhead this afternoon, Seattle Police are searching for a shooting suspect.
From the SPD Blotter:
Officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired near 5th Avenue NE and NE Northgate Way. Police arrived quickly and located the suspect, but when he saw the officers, he sped off in his green Volvo, with police in pursuit.
The suspect lost control of his car and crashed in the 100 block of NE 80th, so he took off running.
Multiple police resources and a police K9 are in the area looking for him now.
Officers have not located any victims or any received additional reports at this time.
Officers believe that the man pictured here (picture removed, the man is in custody) may be the shooting suspect due to fact the he left his driver’s license in the car.
Anyone with information about this man or this incident should call 911.
