Some bullet: Three women were hit by the same bullet when a gun accidentally went off in the car they were in Tacoma last night. Seriously. One woman was hit in the hand. Another was hit in the abdomen and the third suffered a grazing wound to her back. No word on their conditions. The owner of the gun could face some charges. KOMO has the story.
It’s McGinn and Murray: Ed Murray and Hizzoner Mike McGinn finished one and two in the mayor’s race yesterday. Now the real battle begins. Did you vote?
What are the chances that you’d be driving along and hit a moose in our state? Well, six people were injured Monday while traveling Highway 395 near Chewelah in Stevens County when they came upon one of the big critters standing in the road. All six people were taken to hospitals. We assume the moose didn’t make it. (Highway 395 stretches between Spokane and Colville in the northeast corner of the state.) KREM has the story.
Those Mariners: Did they win last night. Uh, no. They lost 7-2 to Toronto. What’s more, Felix Hernandez gave up a home run with his very first pitch. Ouch.
Staying warm: The temperature is expected to hit at least 80 degrees today and some forecasters say it could reach 85. Ah, summer. We’re getting spoiled, aren’t we.
