Hospital: Seattle officer in critical condition

Two officers shot in Seattle location of gunman unclear

Two Seattle Police Officers have been shot and one officer was grazed in the hand by a bullet during a police response to a robbery.

The shooting happened near Madison Street at Western Avenue at about 1:32 p.m. Thursday.

The officers, one female and one male, are being treated at Harborview Medical Center.

The incident marked the first time a police officer was shot in Seattle since October 31, 2009, when officer Tim Brenton was killed and officer Britt Sweeney was wounded, KIRO reports.

The Seattle Times reported that the shootings followed a robbery at a convenience store.

Police officials and the Seattle Police Foundation previously reported that the injuries were minor. Two suspects have been detained while police search for a third suspect. It wasn't clear which officer had which injuries.

That suspect is described as a 250-pound wearing a Seahawks beanie hat and glasses. One sustained significant injuries.

Seattle Police officers are searching for a possible third suspect.

The officers confronted the three suspects at the scene when a fight erupted.

A third suspect fired at the officers and the officers fired back, Best said.

One was shot in the chest but saved by a bulletproof vest, and the other was shot in the chin and ribcage, Mayor Ed Murray said a news conference near the scene. A female officer, 42, is in satisfactory condition.

There was a heavy police presence and the streets were closed as officials warned people to stay away from the scene.
