Three people remained hospitalized Thursday morning after eight people were shot during rush hour Wednesday afternoon at the corner of 3rd Avenue and Pine Street.

Police said a fight that started outside of the McDonald's at 3rd Avenue and Pine Street escalated and multiple people started shooting. A woman between 40 and 50 years old was killed. Seven others - including a 9-year-old boy - were injured and taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Susan Gregg, a spokeswoman for Harborview, gave the following updates on the shooting victims Thursday morning:

  • 9-YEAR-OLD BOY - SATISFACTORY
  • 55-YEAR-OLD WOMAN - SERIOUS
  • 32-YEAR-OLD MAN - SATISFACTORY
  • 21-YEAR-OLD MAN - DISCHARGED
  • 34-YEAR-OLD MAN - DISCHARGED
  • 35-YEAR-OLD MAN - DISCHARGED
  • 49-YEAR-OLD MAN - DISCHARGED

Sources told Q13 News that police have identified two suspects. They will not be named until they are charged, unless Seattle Police seek the public's help to find them.

A source close to the investigation told Brandi Kruse that the men - both 24 years old - have a history with law enforcement and are clearly considered armed and dangerous.

Both suspects had warrants out for their arrest prior to the shooting. One of the men has been arrested at least 44 times and has at least 20 criminal convictions. The other man has at least 15 convictions and 21 arrests.
