A third person has died from injuries in a shooting at a Seattle cafe that set off a manhunt and forced officials to close schools.

Gunfire erupted late Wednesday morning at Cafe Racer, a restaurant and music venue north of the University of Washington.

Two men were killed at the scene. A woman from the cafe died later at a hospital. Two other people were wounded.

The latest spasm of deadly gun violence to hit the city in recent weeks has worried Seattle's leaders and prompted police to consider increasing patrols in high-crime areas.

The three deaths bring the number of homicides to 19 this year, compared to 21 in all of last year.
