Two women, 1 pregnant, shot on the 4th in Top Hat

From King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West:

Last night around 1130 pm King County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of two women shot near S. 112th St. and 1st Ave S. [map].

The women were with a group of people lighting off fireworks at that location. Witnesses said a white car was driving erratically back and forth in between the area where the group was lighting fireworks. When the vehicle stopped nearby a man from the group approached the vehicle to yell at the driver to stop driving recklessly.

An altercation occurred between the man and two people in the car. During the altercation shots rang out and two women in the group were shot. It is unknown at this time if the shots came from the occupants of the car.

The woman who was shot in the back is a pregnant, 24-year-old Burien woman. She was taken to Harborview and is in serious but stable condition. The other woman, 46 and from Seattle, was taken to Highline Hospital with a gunshot wound to her foot.

The vehicle in the altercation is described as a white older model sedan occupied by two females. Detectives are asking for anyone with information to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.

  1. Wow, what’s going on around here?

    Tonight, I found a shell casing on 17th just north of Roxbury when I was picking up my burrito at the taqueria. It was a .380, so not a big load but not a .22 either. I wasn’t sure if I should call the police so I just left it there…

  2. Finding spent shells is nothing new happens every year some morons decide to fire off a few rounds instead of lightning fire work’s off. The shots get mixed with the sounds of fireworks. Some are even dumb of enough to shoot straight up in the air not thinking of where those rounds are going to drop.
