The suspicious device was spotted by building guards about 2 a.m. Monday. Seattle police closed streets around the Abraham Lincoln Building at Third and Seneca until the device was destroyed around 5 a.m. by the bomb squad.
A gunman opened fire at a Seattle cafe on Wednesday, killing two people, critically wounding three others and setting off a manhunt that forced officials to close nearby schools, authorities said. One of those critically wounded has died at Harborview. Police searching for the suspect also had to respond to another fatal shooting near the city’s downtown. They say a man killed a woman in an apparent carjacking and fled in a black SUV into a West Seattle neighborhood.
