Shooting at the Cafe Racer, 18 blocks north of the Seattle Campus, resulting in 5 victims, 3 of whom were fatalities. The incident was later resolved in West Seattle where the suspect died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The suspect was also connected to a shooting in downtown Seattle that day as well. University police assisted the Seattle police at the scene and University Emergency Management monitored the incident as it evolved. There was no verifiable threat to the UW Seattle Campus.
