SKYWAY, Wash. -- A woman driving on Rainier Avenue South in Skyway was shot in the head and killed and then crashed into two other vehicles Wednesday night, the King County Sheriff's Office said.

The shooting occurred in the 11400 block of Rainier Avenue South, the sheriff's office tweeted.

The woman was fatally shot Wednesday night by someone who was also in a southbound vehicle and detectives believe the victim was targeted, said sheriff's Sgt. Ryan Abbott. Detectives said Friday the shooting was not random.

He says surveillance footage from a nearby marijuana store shows the suspect vehicle is a black or dark-colored sedan.

Abbott says after the woman was shot, her car veered across the center line, sideswiped one vehicle and crashed into another before stopping on a sidewalk.

He says the woman had died by the time officers arrived.

"No suspect info yet," the sheriff's office tweeted.

Anyone who may have witnessed the shooting is asked to call 206-296-3311.
