Latest on shooting
There was an arrest in North Seattle last night that appears to be related to the Capitol Hill shooting. Here is a link to KOMO 4’s story.
The Seattle Police Department is still withholding the shooter’s identity, as well as those of the victims, although the Times has a story that names two victims — Christopher Williamson, 21; and Jeremy Martin, 26.
The SPD is not “100 percent” sure of the shooter’s identity, so the department is letting the King County Medical Examiner confirm. The office is unlikely to release that information till tomorrow.
There are no new updates on the medical conditions of the two victims taken to Harborview Medical Center. Again, one has life-threatening injuries and the other is conscious and has been interviewed by police.
Police locked the crime scene overnight and have returned this morning to finish processing it.
The police have established a tipline for people who can help in the investigation. (206) 233-2666 is that number.

Any new information will be posted immediately on Slog.
