The shooting occurred at 10th Avenue and East Pine Street at about 3 a.m., according to police reports. Alemayehu was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

While officers were on their way to the scene, they learned a possible suspect was running through Cal Anderson Park. They found the man and took him into custody. He had a gun in his possession, reports say.

The man was booked into jail, but has since been released. The King County Prosecutor’s Office has not yet received a referral for charges from the Seattle Police Department. A police department spokesman said Friday they are still investigating the case.
