CNN-Three people have been killed and three others wounded in shootings in northern Seattle, police said Wednesday.

Police are currently searching for a suspect.

One shooting occurred at Cafe Racer on Roosevelt Way.

"Roosevelt way shooter was seen running away from the scene northbound," the police department's Twitter feed said. "He was armed with a gun."

One victim in the cafe shooting has life threatening injuries, and two others are seriously wounded, according to police.
Detectives were also investigating a separate shooting and possible carjacking was reported several miles away, near downtown - but its connection to the cafe slayings, if any, was not immediately known. A woman was killed at the scene of that possible carjacking. Police found the black Mercedes SUV involved in that shooting abandoned shortly after. Video from the scene showed a handgun on the driver's seat of the vehicle.
The suspect is described as a white male, between 30 and 40 years old, with a medium build, brown hair and a goatee or beard, police said.

CNN affiliate KIRO reported multiple ambulances, police officers and fire trucks were at the scene.
