5 killed in a cafe in Seattle shooting spree

Seattle Police crime scene investigators work at Cafe Racer in North Seattle, where earlier a gunman shot two men and a woman to death on May 30, 2012. -- PHOTO: REUTERS SEATTLE (AFP) - A gunman killed five people in a shooting spree in Seattle on Wednesday before turning the weapon on himself as officers closed in, police said. The shootings shocked the north-western United States (US) city that has now seen as many murders this year as it did in the whole of 2011. The suspect, identified by the Seattle Times as 40-year-old Ian Stawicki, is believed to have entered Cafe Racer Espresso near the University of Seattle at around 11 am (2am Singapore time), where he shot five people with a pistol, two of whom died at the scene. Half-an-hour later, Stawicki is believed to have shot dead a woman in downtown Seattle before fleeing in a black Mercedes-Benz SUV.
