Drivers trade shots in Tukwila road-rage fight; 1 hospitalized

Two drivers traded shots this afternoon in a Tukwila road-rage incident that sent one man to Harborview Medical Center with a serious gunshot wound.

Tukwila police say that just before 5 p.m., one driver, who was upset that a car had pulled over in the 10700 block of 47th Avenue South, left his vehicle and banged on the window of the other car with a gun in his hand.

The driver in the parked car also had a gun and, after a verbal confrontation, the drivers shot at each other and then fled.

Police responding to reports of gunfire found one driver not far from the shooting scene with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, which was initially reported by KING 5 as life-threatening. That driver has since been stabilized at Harborview Medical Center, according to the Tukwila Police Department.

Police say they have contacted both parties  and that everyone is cooperating with an ongoing investigation.
