Tonight at just after 7:30pm, a vehicle headed westbound on Yesler opened fire on a car passing in the opposite direction at 24th Avenue, hitting one of the five occupants of the other vehicle in the head.
The victim was driven to Swedish Cherry Hill hospital and treated for a non-life threatening injury that was described as a “grazing wound.”
Police impounded the victim vehicle which had a bullet hole in the front windshield. It appears that most of the occupants of the victim vehicle were juveniles.
Witnesses at the scene of the shooting described the suspect vehicle as a light-colored sedan, with the shooter placed in the back left seat. Shell casings were found there in the roadway around 24th & Yesler.
