Update at 4:20 p.m.: Seattle detectives collected video surveillance from Friday morning’s shooting at a West Seattle 7-Eleven and are now working to identify the people involved.
The video shows a group of males circling through the parking lot of the 7-Eleven in a gray or silver Buick before they climb out of the car and confront several men and women standing outside the store, police said Friday afternoon. One of the suspects grabbed a man’s phone and demanded his watch while the rest of the group returned to the Buick.
As the car drove away, one of the shooting victims threw something at the car, police said. The Buick driver then fired several shots out of a car window and struck one man in the buttocks and one woman in both her legs.
Anyone who recognizes the suspects is asked to contact the Seattle Police Department robbery unit at 206-684-5535.
