Seattle police officers are searching for a suspected gunman who fled a shooting involving multiple victims Wednesday, the department said.

Shots rang out around 5 p.m. near Pine Street and 4th Avenue, less than a half-mile from a separate officer-involved shooting that occurred hours before.

It was not clear how many victims were involved in the most recent shooting, but some on social media said seven people had been shot and that officers had chased a suspect.

First responders were providing first aid to those injured, police said.
