SEATTLE (AP) -- The King County medical examiner's office has identified three of the victims in Wednesday's Seattle shootings, including two people killed at a cafe and a woman carjacked near downtown Seattle.

Friends earlier identified two of the Cafe Racer victims as Drew Keriakedes and 52-year-old Joe Albanese, saying they were old-time musicians and cafe regulars.

On Thursday, the medical examiner's office confirmed the identification of the 49-year-old Keriakedes and identified a woman fatally shot at the cafe -- 36-year-old Kimberly Layfield.

Ian Stawicki fatally shot four people at the cafe and wounded a fifth. Police say he fled and later killed a female motorist, taking off with her SUV. The medical examiner identified the motorist as 52-year-old Gloria Leonidas.

Stawicki later fatally shot himself.

The medical examiner says the other victim IDs, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released Friday.
