Seattle shooting leaves 1 dead, 2 injured

/ CBS News

Police in Seattle are searching for a gunman who opened fire at a light-rail station late Friday night, killing one and injuring two others, authorities said. The shooting broke out in the city's downtown area around 9:30 p.m. local time, CBS affiliate KOIN-TV reported.

First responders discovered three victims underground at the Westlake Station. Medics performed life-saving measures on one of the victims who died, the Seattle Fire Department said.

"As I get down into the tunnel, on the bottom escalators, there's a guy sitting there, bleeding out from his leg," witness David Lewis told KOIN-TV.

Lewis said the victim warned him not to enter the station because the gunman was nearby.

Investigators believe the shooting began above ground at a nearby McDonald's. They believe only one suspect is responsible. An investigation is ongoing.

On America's college campuses, there are epidemics we talk about and those we don't. When sexual assaults or fraternity hazing deaths make headlines, court cases follow and new rules are enacted, but less attention is paid to an underlying issue – binge drinking culture. CBSN Originals explores how drinking to excess is not only considered normal, but cool, and how for many young people "blacking out" is less a rarity than an every weekend occurrence – with grave consequences.
