10:53 PM: We just talked with KCSO spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West at the scene – here’s the video:
She confirms the victim is dead – still in the street, wrapped in a tarp. She says he’s a black man who appears to be in his 40s. Detectives are just starting their investigation so the intersection of 9th and 100th will be closed for a while, and they won’t be calling the Medical Examiner to get the victim’s body until they are done with their work.
A nearby resident tells us he heard two gunshots around 9:10 pm.
12:41 AM: Sgt. West now says the victim appears to be “late 30s – early 40s.”
2:41 PM: Just checked with Sgt. West and she says there’s no official new information. (See the comment section for updates from nearby resident RJ.)
3:25 PM: The King County Medical Examiner has identified the victim as 42-year-old James Nickerson, Jr.; cause of death, “multiple firearm injuries.”
