SEATTLE -- Seattle police are searching for a silver sedan involved in a fatal drive-by shooting in Seattle's Central District Friday night.
Around 7:30 p.m., police officers responded to 911 calls of a shooting in the 2500 block of South Norman Street. Preliminary reports indicate the 30-year-old male victim was shot while he sat in a vehicle parked in front of a residence.
"I was serving dinner around seven o'clock, so around that time, I heard several shots, like 'pow, pow, pow, pow, pow,' and I knew it was guns," one woman told KING 5.
She was visiting a home in the area when she heard the gunshots. When she ran to the street, she saw the victim slumped over near the passenger's side door of a car about a block away.
Police say the shooter walked up to the victim and some of his friends, who were hanging out in front of a house on Norman Street, and started shooting.
Then, it's believed, he ran to a waiting car and fled the scene. Police say it appears there were other suspects in the vehicle, but it's unknown how many.
The vehicle is described as a light-colored Mercedes-Benz, possibly silver or grey.
The primary suspect is described by police as a black male, thin build, 5'11" tall with dreadlocks or braids in his hair. He was reportedly wearing a ski mask.
Neighbors say the home where the shooting took place is where the victim of last December's deadly shooting at The Munchbar in Bellevue once lived.
It was Christmas Eve 2012, when a chaotic scene erupted inside the nightclub. Deshawn Milliken was shot several times, and did not survive.
KING 5 has confirmed thru property and voting records that Deshawn Milliken did indeed live on Norman Street, and some of his relatives still do
Late Friday evening, KING 5 spokes to Milliken's mother, who said she was with the victim's family at Harborview Medical Center, where he'd just passed away.
Police have not yet confirmed the victim's death.
They are urging anyone with information about the shooting to call Seattle Police immediately. It's not yet known whether the victim and suspect knew each other, but police say it does not appear to be a random act.
