SEATTLE (KPTV) -

Seattle police have taken a woman into custody accused of shooting a man inside a city parks and recreation office.

The shooting happened just before 2 p.m. Friday in the 8000 block of Densmore Avenue North. Medics responded to the scene and said the man, Bill Keller, 65, suffered potential life-threatening injuries from the gunshot wound to his chest.

He was listed in critical, but stable, condition.

Police said Carolyn Piksa, 47, was taken into custody at around 4:50 p.m. in Burien, south of Seattle. Investigators said she is a Seattle Parks and Recreation employee.

Officers said she left the first scene and went to another city facility at 130th and Linden Avenue North, where she brandished a gun at a woman and left without firing any shots.

Seattle police said they planned to release more details at a Friday evening press conference.
