Seattle Rocked by Week of Deadly Violence

Ad Feedback

One of America's safest cities has seen a week of deadly violence. Seven people have been killed in Seattle in just six days.

In one of the latest incidents, an armed man walked into a cafe near Seattle University, where he opened fire and killed four people. That shooter went on to kill a woman in a carjacking, before shooting himself.

Seattle residents packed a town hall meeting Wednesday night to express their fear and frustration to the mayor, police and community leaders.

City Councilman Bruce Harrell called on leaders to consider everything to address the crisis -- from changing laws to addressing the culture of violence.
Harrell told the crowd at the town hall meeting, "If we are to be honest, there's no easy fix."

There are plans to increase the number of patrols on city streets. Seattle police are also urging people with information about shootings to come forward.

In the past five months, there have been 21 homicides -- the total number of murders for all of last year.
