Seattle Police say a brawl involving 20-30 people early this morning outside an area hookah bar left one man suffering from a gunshot wound, and a number of witnesses apparently unwilling to help police track down the gunman.
After the shootout, police recovered 20 shell casings from the scene, and also apparently encountered difficulty getting witnesses to the melee to cooperate with their investigation.
"According to Security, the two men may have been shooting at each other - those details are still sketchy and no one at the scene would provide officers with information," writes Witt.
Police say a friend of the victim drove him to Sweedish Hospital following the shooting, and that he was later transferred to Harborview with gunshot wounds to his abdomen and ass. The Seattle PI reports the victim is in surgery and his exact condition is unknown.
Meanwhile, Seattle Police say the shooter remains on the loose.
