Detectives Investigating Monday Morning Capitol Hill Shooting

Detectives are interviewing a 19-year-old woman after a man was shot Monday morning in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Dispatchers began receiving calls to 911 just before 11 AM stating there had been multiple shots fired in the 100 block of Melrose Avenue East. Officers arrived and found a man with multiple gunshot wounds in a nearby alley and spoke to witnesses, who reported seeing a woman fleeing the area immediately following the shooting.  Witnesses also reported seeing the victim of the shooting throw a gun in some bushes not far from where he was found.

Medics transported the 32-year-old victim to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Dispatchers later received a call from a woman, who said she had shot the man. The woman said that she would wait at an intersection for officers to arrive.  Officers quickly found and detained the 19-year-old woman who is now being interviewed by detectives.
