Few details on the violence were immediately available but television station KOMO-TV reported the incident snarled evening rush-hour traffic and quoted an office worker identified only as Bill as saying he heard gunfire and saw scores of people running for cover.

“It was sheer panic,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“Detectives are investigating after six people were wounded by gunfire, one fatally,” Seattle police said on Twitter.
