A 68-year-old Tukwila man was killed near the Costco in the 4400 block of Fourth Avenue South at about 10:30 a.m.

Seattle police said it began as a road rage incident that escalated to a confrontation, then a shooting.

Police said they found the victim with a gunshot wound to his stomach. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center where he died.

Seattle police said a 38-year-old man who opened fire called 911 and cooperated with detectives. The man’s gun was collected as evidence.

Many vehicles, including a Lexus SUV, a Toyota Highland and a Toyota RAV4, stopped on Fourth Avenue South during the shooting, and investigators believe some of the people may have witnessed what happened.
