3 officers wounded by gunfire after robbery

Two Seattle police officers remain in the hospital after exchanging gunfire with robbery suspects on Thursday at a 7-Eleven convenience store.

Whitcomb says another suspect, a woman, is in custody and being questioned.

Likewise, the fate of the barricaded suspect repeatedly changed: At an afternoon news briefing near the shooting scene, Deputy Police Chief Carmen Best said that aside from the wounded officers, no one else had been injured.

Officers discovered the body of a male suspect from the robbery after the shooting, according to a police statement. Two officers, one male and one female, were shot and a third officer sustained a hand injury during the incident. Two more photographs show the vest that stopped a bullet which struck Officer Elizabeth Kennedy. One of the Seattle police officers, 30, was initially listed "in serious but stable condition", after being shot in the rib cage and chin.

Panattoni is with Kang at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center, where Kang is listed in serious, but stable, condition. A male suspect was found dead.

As they ran, the man pulled out a gun and began firing at the cops, who returned fire, Best said.

Police searching for possible 3rd suspect: black male, dark complexion, 5'11, 250 lbs, black jacket, glasses, Seahawks beanie.

According to the King County Medical Examiner's Office the suspect was identified as 19-year-old Damarius Butts. The other is satisfactory and doing well thanks to her bulletproof vest.

Update, 4:48 p.m.: Seattle police say the investigation is "rapidly developing" and now a third suspect may be involved.

The Seattle Times reported that the shootings followed a robbery at a convenience store.

The 42-year-old female officer is in satisfactory condition and her 30-year-old male colleague is in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center, police said. Both have been with the department for about three years, Best said.

The department disclosed the shooting on Twitter, saying the robbery had been reported near the waterfront, several blocks south of Pike Place Market.

Officials were advising people that traffic in the downtown core would be affected for several hours for the investigation.

The two officers still in the hospital are expected to survive.
