Teen Shot Near Garfield

There was a shooting this afternoon near Garfield High; the victim walked into the Garfield Teen Life Center just before 4 pm.  It appears a 17-year old male was shot but no word if this was a student.

My Northwest is reporting that the suspect, "in his mid-to-late teens" has been arrested. 

The latest tweet from SPS says "after-hours lockdown at Garfield and Nova Schools now lifted."

The principal robo-called about the incident and did not say anything one way or the other about the status of the suspect and victim as students.

Was this (shooting near Garfield) related to the lockdown at SAAS and NWS and the guy with a grenade on Madison or is it just crazy day in the neighborhood?

Apparently unrelated... CapHill Parent

The Seattle Times reports that the victim is a student in Seattle Public Schools, although not necessarily at Garfield.

Also of note - most news outlets report that the suspect is still being sought. No arrest made in connection with the shooting.
