Following an afternoon and evening of protests decrying the election of Donald Trump as America's next president, The Seattle Times reports, police are responding to reports that at least four people were shot downtown Wednesday night.
Officers were converging on the area of Third and Pike.
An anti-Trump rally, which started at Westlake Mall, turned into a march and was proceeding down nearby streets at the time of the shootings, according to witnesses.
