At least one person has been killed and five others, including a 9-year-old boy, injured in a shooting that happened around 5pm local time in downtown Seattle, Washington, local media report.
Police launched a manhunt for a single male suspect, who fled the scene after firing “more than a dozen shots,” according to witnesses. Officers and medics provided first aid to the injured and sent them to a hospital.
