Authorities ID woman killed in downtown Seattle shooting

SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities identified Friday the woman who was killed in a downtown Seattle shooting that also wounded seven people and raised questions about safety in the city’s center. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office says 50-year-old Tanya Jackson, a resident of a group housing facility, was killed in the shooting Wednesday night. The Seattle Times reports Jackson had a reputation among the staff who managed her building as being joyful. A Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman says a 9-year-old boy who was shot was released from the hospital Friday afternoon while a 55-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man remained in the hospital Saturday.
