Two women injured in drive-by shooting in Seattle; Gang Unit investigating

SEATTLE — A young woman was shot in the arm and another female was injured in a drive-by shooting at 22nd Avenue and East Pine Street in Seattle’s Central District Wednesday, police and fire department officials said.

The Seattle Fire Department said one woman was approximately 17 and she was taken to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the arm. The Fire Department said the other woman was injured, but not from a gunshot.

Seattle police said that shortly after 5 p.m. officers responded to reports of gunfire at 22nd Avenue and East Pine Street.

The victims told officers they were driving in the 2100 block of East Pine when they pulled over to let another car that was traveling in the opposite direction pass. As the black car passed, the driver fired several shots at the victim’s car, striking at least one of the victims. The victim’s car then struck an unoccupied parked car as the suspect drove off.

The Seattle Police Department said its Gang Unit detectives were investigating.
