BURIEN, Wash. -- Two people were killed and five more were wounded in multiple shootings in King and Snohomish counties in less than 24 hours Wednesday.
Woman killed while driving in Skyway
In Skyway, a 22-year-old woman died after she was shot while driving down Rainier Avenue South around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.
According to the King County Sheriff's Office, when the woman was shot she drifted into other lanes and hit another car.
Authorities said Thursday that the woman was targeted, but it was still unclear if the shooting was gang-related.
The driver of the other car was okay.
Stray bullet kills woman in Burien
Authorities say a woman was killed in a shooting outside a health clinic in Burien.
The King County Sheriff's Office says the 51-year-old woman was working at a chiropractic office on 1st Avenue South Wednesday afternoon when people fired from a vehicle.
"One of the rounds went through the window" of the One Source Chiropractic office and "struck the front office worker," said Sgt. Ryan Abbott.
"She was just at work, doing her job, trying to provide for her family and a stray bullet" crashed through the window and struck the woman, Abbott said. "This is extremely tragic."
Detectives said at a news conference Thursday that deputies had arrested two teenage gang members in connection with the shooting.
Abbott said investigators made the arrests with the SWAT team late Wednesday night. The suspects have not yet been identified because they have not yet been charged with a crime. Any charges will be filed by the King County Prosecutor's Office.
Abbott said no other suspects are outstanding.
Deputies said the suspects were trying to hit a man who was walking on the sidewalk. That person was not hit and is cooperating with authorities.
