A man was shot near Southeast 92nd and Holgate just before 10:00pm on Friday. The suspect took off before police got there. The victim was taken to the hospital where he died on Saturday.
A customer of Mingle Bar on Northwest Everett near 4th Avenue in Old Town was shot just before 2:00 early Sunday morning. Customers flagged down officers who found the victim inside and could see the man needed medical help. He died on the way to the hospital.
