Seattle Police Department officers responded to a shooting near the Northwest African American Museum and Jimi Hendrix Park in Seattle near 23rd & S Massachusetts St. Monday night.

According to SPD, at about 9:15 pm, officers received reports of shots fired in the area and responded to investigate. Upon their arrival they heard shots. They pulled up in front of the Northwest African American Museum at which time a suspect came around the corner from the parking lot and began firing at them.

During a press conference following the incident, Assistant Police Chief Deanna Nollette said that an unspecified number of officers returned fire, striking the suspect. Once the suspect was down and was no longer a threat, officers went into the parking lot to see if there were any victims and located two victims who were also down with multiple gunshot wounds.

According to KIRO 7 News, two victims were taken to Harborview Medical Center with life threatening injuries. Hospital officials said that one of the victims was a woman who is listed in critical condition. The suspect was declared dead at the scene.

According to police the suspect is deceased from the gunshots. Nollette said that there "will be an open, transparent investigation...We have our crime scene investigators, our homicide unit, the office of the inspector general, the office of professional accountability and other investigators to try to figure out exactly what happened here. At this point, preliminarily, we believe that the, there was some sort of a relationship between the suspect and the victims, and we believe that the suspect may have lived in this area."

Sources say that at least two officers were involved in the shooting. Police also believe that the suspect knew the victims.

This is a developing story.
