Police are searching for a person they say has been cruising around Seattle in a brown Honda and shooting at people with a pellet gun.
A woman standing at a bus stop in the 3800 block of Rainier Avenue South first reported being struck by something coming from a car driving northbound, according to a tweet from the Seattle Police Department.
Then, another woman near Martin Luther King Jr. Way and South Hudson Street told police she was hit in another drive-by pellet-gun shooting, SPD tweeted moments later. The suspect was seen driving a brown Honda.

LYNNWOOD (AP) The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office says a pellet fired from a powerful air rifle killed a man near Lynnwood.
The Daily Herald reports that Sunday’s death of 52-year-old Dean Urness of Edmonds has been ruled a homicide.
Sheriff’s officers believe the shooter was a 32-year-old Lynnwood-area woman. She was being held on $250,000 bail for investigation of second-degree murder.
The newspaper says a number of people apparently were involved in an altercation outside the woman’s home before Urness was shot about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
State Health Department spokesman Donn Moyer says his agency’s data show only one reported death from a pellet gun in Washington between 2007 and 2011.

An argument between a teen and five guys on a Northeast Seattle school playground led to the teen being shot with a pellet gun in the rear end and the five guys running away, according to Seattle police.
The teen was not injured.
There was a function going on at the school, John Rogers Elementary, at the time so it went into lockdown briefly.
The incident occurred Friday about 7:30 p.m. The teen was at the school function, but the five guys were not, police said. At one point, two the five suspects pulled out pellet-type guns and began shooting at the teen. One of the pellets hit him in the buttocks.
The five guys then ran off. Police went looking for them, but didn’t find them.
