KING-TV reported the 30-year-old victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center with what were described as life-threatening injuries.
Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel said a preliminary investigation indicates the victim was talking with friends in front of a residence when the gunman walked up, fired several times and then ran to a waiting, light-colored Mercedes.
A neighbor reports hearing multiple gunshots.
Kappel said officers don't know whether the gunman and victim knew each other but the shooting doesn't appear to be random.
