SEATTLE — A gunman in a car opened fire at two men who had just boarded a King County Metro bus Friday night in north Seattle. A female passenger was “grazed” by a bullet, Seattle police said.
Detectives said the incident started after two pedestrians had been in an altercation with two people in a car at around North 66th and Aurora Avenue North. Witnesses said one of the men in the car began shooting at the two men on foot. They ran and jumped on a bus that had just stopped.
After the two men got on the bus, the gunman in the car started shooting at them, police said.
One of the bullets “grazed” a woman in the head, police said.
Realizing that a bullet grazed a woman on the bus, causing a cut to her head, the bus driver stopped the bus a few blocks away, police said.
Officers rushed to the scene to find only one of the two men still on the bus. Officers were questioning him, police said.
A witness described the shooter as a black male in his late teens wearing a gray hoodie. The suspects were last seen in a silver sedan, possibly resembling a late 90’s Ford Focus.
Seattle Fire department Medics responded and treated the woman at the scene before transporting her to Harborview Medical Center for evaluation.
The Gang Unit took the lead in this investigation.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to call 9-1-1.
