(South Seattle) Two women were shot late last night during a disturbance near S.112th St and 1 Ave S. One of the women was shot in the foot and the other was shot twice in the back. The women were with friends who were lighting off fireworks in the area. An altercation with a motorist may have led to the shooting. (Case#C16033939)


Last night around 1130pm King County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of two women shot near S. 112th St. and 1 Ave S.   The incident happened just before 1130pm. 


 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 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.
