One of those injured was a 9-year-old boy, who was in serious condition.

Calls about multiple gunshot victims began coming in at 5 p.m, according to Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins.

"We responded immediately and we discovered victims at the scene in about a one-block radius," Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told reporters. "Officers immediately started life-saving measures."

Police were searching for at least one victim who ran from the scene.

The shooting happened near 4th and Pine during rush hour.

Fox reports three men, ages 21, 34, and 35 were listed in stable condition. Another woman, 55, was in critical condition.

It was unclear what led to the shooting.
