The Seattle Times reports police became aware of the shooting in the early hours of Monday when a 911 call at 12:20 a.m. reported someone had been shot at an encampment in West Seattle.

Police found the man who was shot upon arrival to the scene. When medics from Seattle Fire Department arrived, they declared him dead.
