SEATTLE - Two men were injured early Wednesday morning after shots were fired into a South Seattle home, police said.

According to police, officers responded to the location after a report of shots fired with an injured person.


During an investigation, an unknown shooter fired shots into the back of the house and then fled the scene in an unknown direction.


A 19-year-old man sustained a grazing wound and was taken to Harborview Medical Center to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.


Just before 3:30 a.m., police were called back to the home for a second victim.


When officers arrived, a 20-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound in the leg.

Three other people were inside the home during the time of the shooting, according to police.  


The shooter remains at large.


The incident remains as an active and ongoing investigation.
