SEATTLE — The search is on for at least one gunman who opened fire in downtown Seattle, wounding five people Wednesday night.

The shooting took place on 3rd Street Avenue between Pike and Pine, but it appeared to be unrelated to an anti-Trump protest that was taking place in downtown Seattle.

The marchers had passed that area much earlier before shots were fired, KCPQ reported.

Police in Seattle are searching for at least one shooter who opened fire outside a convenience store, the Assocaited Press report.

Police say the shooting happened following an argument of some kind at a busy intersection.

The manager of the 7-Eleven says she heard what sounded like firecrackers and told everyone to get down. She says afterward, she saw several people outside on the ground.
