    Police say two people have been fatally shot and three others wounded by gunfire at a homeless encampment in Seattle.

    The Seattle Times reported the shooting happened Tuesday night near Airport Way South and South Atlantic Street south of downtown.

    Police are searching for at least one person connected with the incident. Roads in the area are closed.

    At a press conference addressing homelessness Tuesday night, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray called the shooting an active crime scene and urged people to stay away from the area.
