Responding To Call, Seattle Police Shoot and Kill a Man Near Northwest African American Museum

by Andrew Engelson


A man was shot and killed by Seattle police officers near the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) Tuesday night after an incident that left at least one other person dead, according to a statement from Seattle Police Department (SPD) released Wednesday morning.

SPD wrote that “A suspect shot two victims in the 2300 block of South Massachusetts Street Tuesday night, resulting in the death of one victim and leaving the second critically injured. Officers responded and exchanged gunfire with the suspect, and the suspect died at the scene.”   

SPD later identified the man as  Gregory Taylor, a maintenance employee at the Urban League Village apartments in the building that also houses NAAM.

Coast Property Management, the regional company that manages the Urban League Village affordable apartments, told the Capitol Hill Blog that Taylor was a resident and had worked for years “cleaning and keeping our grounds tidy.”

“We are heartbroken about this tragedy, and our thoughts and concerns are with the individuals involved and their families,”  read a statement from Susan Pickering, chief operating officer at Coast Property Management. “We’re limited in what we can share out of respect for the privacy of everyone involved, but we can confirm that Gregory Taylor was a resident at Urban League Village. He also worked at the building about five hours a week cleaning and keeping our grounds tidy, which is a role he held when we took over management of the property in 2018.”
