Two people wounded in early morning Seattle shooting

Two people suffered non-life threatening injuries in an early morning drive-by shooting in Seattle’s Rainier Valley, according to Seattle police.

A small green, four-door sedan pulled up to a curb in the 7300 block of Rainier Avenue South where the two people were standing and someone inside the vehicle fired three shots shortly after 1 a.m., police spokeswoman Renee Witt wrote in an item posted on the department’s online blotter. No words were exchanged before the shooting, and police were unable to get suspect descriptions, Witt wrote. The sedan drove off south on Rainier.

Officers arrived and found a female victim lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to her leg; a male victim was shot in the foot, according to Witt. Neither victim gave police much information, wrote Witt, adding officers rode with the victims to Harborview Medical Center in hopes of gathering more information, “but their efforts were fruitless,” she said. A canvass of the crowd and neighborhood also didn’t yield any results.

Witt wrote that the 1 a.m. shooting does not appear to be related to an earlier “shots fired” call in the 9400 block of Rainier Avenue South.
