Police say people in two cars fired shots at each other Sunday evening in what officers call a “rolling gun battle” in south Seattle on Rainier Avenue South.

One car crashed into a bus shelter. The driver removed an injured passenger and took him in another vehicle to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

In another shooting Sunday afternoon, police say a man and woman driving in West Seattle say they were shot by a group of men. The man was hit in the leg and a bullet grazed the woman’s ear. The two showed up at Valley Medical Center in Renton for help.
