Unconfirmed report: Capitol Hill shooting claims another life
It won’t be official until the Harborview Medical Center confirms, but several sources close to the case told The Stranger that another person shot in the Capitol Hill rampage has died of his wounds. His name is Jason Travers, according to those sources. This would bring the number of dead to eight, including the shooter, now widely identified as Kyle Huff. One more survivor appears to still be at Harborview Medical Center, listed in serious condition.
During his press conference Saturday, Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske said that the shooter made a single statement during his rampage, but he refused to disclose it. Now, sources are telling The Stranger that Huff announced to his victims, “I have enough caps for all of you fools,” while he sprayed shotgun fire around the home.
Megan Seling and I conducted interviews late into the night and we will have a good deal more to report tomorrow morning.
