Officers say that Marquise Latrelle Tolbert, and William Ray Tolliver, both 24 years of age, are two suspects in a downtown Seattle shooting that left one dead and seven others injured.

According to the Seattle Police Department, SPD officers and King County Sherriff’s deputies arrived at 3rd Avenue and Pine Street following reports of a shooting and victims down at 5 pm on Wednesday, January 22.

Seven victims, one female and nine males, were treated at Harborview Medical Center with injuries ranging from minor to life-threatening. One adult female victim was found fatally shot in the 1500 block of 3rd avenue.

“Witnesses told investigators that two or more male suspects were in a disturbance and began shooting at each other. They fled the scene immediately following the shooting,” said police in a press release.
