There was an additional police presence in downtown Seattle because of an anti-Donald Trump rally, which started at Westlake Mall earlier in the evening.
The rally turned into a march and was proceeding down various streets at the time of the shootings, according to witnesses. Merner said the shooting is unrelated.

“It’s not related to the protest at all,” he said. “It appears to be some type of personal argument.”
Merner said detectives from the department’s gang and homicide units will be investigating. The area will be closed to traffic for several hours.
