It was the third shooting incident this week in the neighborhood near Seattle University.
Police responded to the scene, in the 800 block of 16th Avenue, at about 2 a.m. after receiving a 911 call. Fire department medics took the victim to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
Seattle police detectives gathered up several bags of evidence from the scene. And then the department's gang unit arrived - talking with several people who live in a nearby house.
Investigators later impounded a car as part of their investigation into the shooting. Police says the red Corvette was parked about two blocks away from the shooting scene. It's now being processed for evidence.
A witness saw a red Corvette leave the scene.
The shooting is the latest in a string of violent incidents in the same neighborhood, only a few blocks away from the Seattle University campus.
On Monday morning, 19-year-old walked to Swedish Hospital for treatment after someone shot him in the leg. Later that evening, a handful of people found their cars all shot up. The shooter also opened fire at a house and business.
And last week, a Seattle University student had to hit a panic button on campus after three people beat and stabbed him.
Police found two of the suspects in that incident - teenagers - hiding nearby. A short time later, a police dog found the third suspect, a man in his 20s, hiding in a maintenance yard.
Investigations continue into all the incidents.
