Man shot in South Seattle early Wednesday


Seattle police are investigating the shooting of a 29-year-old man in the 4300 block of South Othello Street early Wednesday morning.

The victim, whose name was not released, was shot in the right leg shortly before 12:30 a.m., police spokeswoman Renee Witt said, and was expected to recover.

The shooting was not connected to the slaying of a 15-year-old boy two hours earlier that also remains under investigation, she said.

Investigators have some leads they are actively pursuing but no arrests had been made and no motive was yet determined, Witt said early Wednesday.
