2 teens wounded in Seattle’s Discovery Park

Seattle gang detectives are investigating a shooting at Discovery Park on Thursday night that left two teenagers wounded.

Police said the shooting happened around 10:47 p.m. near the visitor’s center after the 16-year-old boy had fought with three other teens police say he knew.

When police responded to the area, they couldn’t find the wounded teen who later turned at a hospital he had been taken to by friends. He suffered a non life-threatening arm wound, police said.

Police said officers who interviewed the victim, found him “less than cooperative.”

The teen girl did not initially know she had been shot, police said, but was taken to a North Seattle hospital by her parents around 2 a.m. after she returned home and was discovered to have a bleeding leg wound.

All three suspects, who are described vaguely in police reports remain at large and the investigation remains open.
