Very little information is available as of this writing, but there is a major investigation centered around NE 145th St and 17th NE in Shoreline near Goodwill / QFC.

Seattle Police issued a brief statement at 2:42am on Sunday, March 5, 2023 that they were assisting King County Sheriff's Office (Shoreline Police) with a shooting investigation and that K9 may be deployed.

Seattle Department of Traffic (SDOT) advised that NE 145th was blocked in both directions between 15th and 17th NE.

Neighbors report hearing shots. Two drivers who were stopped at the police barricade were told that a police officer was shot.

Neighbors report a massive police response "easily over 40 vehicles for blocks."

More information will be published as available.

I am the person living across the street from where the suspect was caught. I believe the shooting took place at the gas station, however I am not sure. Minimum 10 cop cars and about 40 officers arrived on scene.
