Mayor, police pledge action after deadly Seattle shooting

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle’s mayor and its police chief say they will not allow a deadly downtown shooting become the city’s new normal. The shootout that left a woman dead and seven others hurt was the third violent incident this week. Mayor Jenny Durkan said Thursday she and the police will use every tool they have to reduce violence in that area and pledged to meet with business owners. While crime rates in Seattle are low compared to other big cities, critics say mayhem downtown makes people feel unsafe. Police Chief Carmen Best says one of the people wounded is a suspected shooter and has been arrested. Police are searching for two other believed shooters.
