    SEATTLE - A 26-year-old man was killed and another was hurt in a shooting shortly before midnight Sunday.

    Seattle police said the shooting happened after an argument outside Club Volume on South Washington Street.

    Police said the victims, who drove away, were followed to the 400 block of South Jackson Street near King Street Station, where a car pulled alongside their vehicle and an occupant opened fire, hitting the two men in the front seat.

    Police received a report that two people had been shot but when they arrived at the scene, no one was there; however, multiple shell casings were found.

    Investigators discovered the injured man had driven several blocks to the 5900 block of First Avenue South after receiving a 911 call reporting their location.

    One man was dead when officers arrived. A 22-year-old man was taken to Haborview Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Two passengers in the back seat of the car were not hurt.

    Homicide and CSI detectives searched all three crime scenes for evidence. 

    Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the violent crime tip line at 206-233-5000.  Anonymous tips are welcome.
