SEATTLE — Seattle police say a suspect in a deadly shooting at a downtown light rail station has been arrested.

Police said the person was arrested Monday afternoon in Bellevue.

Police believe the shooting was connected to an argument among three men on downtown streets that moved below ground to the tunnel station. Gunfire erupted around 9:20 p.m., sending people fleeing.

Police say one man died in the shooting, and two other people were injured and taken to Harborview Medical Center.

The Seattle Times reports one victim was discharged from the hospital Saturday, while the other is in satisfactory condition.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office on Monday identified 21-year-old Dawda Corr as the shooting victim and determined he died from multiple gunshot wounds. His death was ruled a homicide.
