‘TARGETED’

2 Dead in Seattle Homeless Camp Shooting

Seattle police said they’re searching for two suspects after two people were killed and three others were injured in a shooting at a homeless encampment Tuesday night. Police said they responded to reports of gunfire in a wooded area and found five victims. One woman was dead at the scene and four victims were taken to the hospital. Of those, one male died, two victims were in critical condition, and another was in serious condition, authorities said. All of the victims lived at the camp, known as The Jungle. Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said authorities have several leads and are interviewing witnesses. Police did not release any further details about the two “persons of interest,” but said they have reason to believe the shooting was “very targeted” and a dispute among people who knew each other.
