Seattle officers shot while responding to robbery

Seattle police say there is more than one suspect and one of them has significant injuries; and another has been taken in to custody. It wasn't clear which officer had which injuries.

The shooting occurred near Madison Street and Western Avenue, just blocks away from the downtown waterfront, the Seattle Police Department announced on Twitter.

Chief Kathleen O'Toole told reporters at first that the injuries to the officers were believed to be minor, but hospital officials later said one of the officers is in critical condition.
