Police are responding to a shooting at a homeless encampment in south Seattle known as “The Jungle,” KIRO 7 reports. Five people have been shot. The gunman is still at large.

Police have closed the area around Airport Way South and South Atlantic Street for their investigation, the Seattle Times reports. The shooting took place just before Mayor Ed Murray began an address concerning Seattle’s homelessness crisis.

“At this point, we don’t know if it’s safe, we urge people to stay away until we can get you additional information. Again it’s an active crime scene, multiple victims, and we will have a press conference later this evening,” Murray said.
