Man charged in Seattle light rail station shooting

SEATTLE (AP) — Prosecutors say a 20-year-old followed his alleged victims down to the lower level of Seattle's Westlake light-rail station and opened fire as bystanders ran from the scene. One man was killed and two others wounded in the Sept. 13 shooting.

The Seattle Times reports Bryce Hardy of Seattle was charged Thursday with premeditated murder and two counts of assault. Each count carries a firearm enhancement.

Hardy was also charged with one count of unlawful possession of a firearm. He was arrested Monday in Bellevue and remains jailed in lieu of $2 million bail.

Police believe the shooting was connected to an argument among three men on downtown streets that moved below ground to the tunnel station. Twenty-one-year-old Dawda Corr died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to the King County Medical Examiner's Office.

It wasn't known if Hardy has a lawyer.
