Several other people have been detained and are being interviewed. One gun has also been recovered, police said.

KIRO 7 reporter Deborah Horne said one person was taken into custody shortly after the shooting and the second person was arrested around 5 p.m.

Chopper 7 over the scene shortly after the shooting showed police and a K-9 unit looking for the shooter near the transit center at 23rd Avenue South and South 317th Street.

Police also blocked off one entrance of the transit center with crime scene tape while they investigated.

Video showed two officers, one with his gun drawn, searching the parking garage. People were not able to access their vehicles while police searched the parking garage, but by 4:30 p.m. the garage was opened again.

Police do not yet know the relationship between the victim and the shooter.

MC and I were driving past that exact spot as about 106 squad cars, EMT, and helo were surrounding the place.

The Staters that passed us prior to our arrival were VERY serious about getting there.

I heard all this going on through the scanner, it was pretty intense. Cops were really freaking out over this.

Well, that certainly explains all of the all of the unmarked and Sheriff cars Moving With Purpose (and lights) down the HOV lanes of I5 this afternoon.
