Two lanes of traffic are now moving on Interstate 5 southbound near the Boeing Access Rd. after gunfire exchanged by passengers in two cars caused a collision and major emergency and police response.
I-5 southbound was completely closed at 4:30 p.m. as police and paramedics responded to the incident. Lanes were blocked for more than 30 minutes.
The Seattle Police Department said a dispute between two groups of men around 4 p.m. Sunday led to a shootout on Beacon Hill that then spilled onto I-5.
One man involved in the dispute was hit in shoulder and was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, SPD said.
Shortly before 5 p.m., WSDOT tweeted: "WSP just blocked Michigan to SB I-5. Please be patient. Please don't get out of your car. We have a plan to get vehicles off I-5." The agency said traffic is backed up 5 miles to Spokane Street and growing.
Northbound I-5 was moving very slowly at the scene.
