Woman shot at downtown Seattle intersection

SEATTLE — A woman was shot in the head and critically wounded early Monday at a downtown Seattle intersection.

Other officers found the wounded woman. Fire department medics took her to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life-threatening injuries.
