Update: Deadly shooting at Seattle Roll Bakery in White Center
12:21 AM: According to scanner information, there’s been a shooting in the 9800 block of 16th SW in White Center, one person described as having been shot in the head. The King County Sheriff’s Office is asking for Seattle Police help in the search for a man in a black mask armed with a 9 millimeter gun, last seen headed north on 16th SW (toward West Seattle). That’s all we know so far.
12:40 AM: We have a crew headed to the scene, and Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West has announced via Twitter that she is going there too.
1:49 AM: KCSO Sgt. West confirms that the victim, a man in his 20s, was killed. The shooting apparently happened during the robbery of an open-all-night business she described as a sandwich shop (listings for the address, 9828 16th SW, are for Seattle Roll Bakery, known for its banh mi sandwiches), and she says the victim was one of at least three employees in the shop at the time.
5:05 AM: TV stations are live in downtown WC for their morning newscasts. So far, no new information beyond what we had reported as of three hours ago. Sgt. West promised an update later this morning when she gets new information from detectives, who are still on the scene right now.
NOON: No new official information from KCSO; Sgt. West sent an update basically saying she’s still working with detectives to see what can be made public.
