Seattle Police gang detectives are investigating the shooting that happened about 11:15 p.m. on Thursday. Police received a tip that a man was shot and was en-route to Harborview Medical Center.

When detectives found the man at Harborview he said he was “walking near Little Brook Park when someone in a car shot at him, striking him in his rear,” said Seattle Police spokesman Jonah Spangenthal-Lee.

Police said this is the second time that the man has been shot in Lake City in the last two years.

“This time, he told detectives he has no idea why anyone would want to shoot him, as he is working, going to school, and attempting to put his past troubles behind him,” said Spangenthal-Lee.
