Story

Two men are in critical condition after being shot outside of a house in Shoreline this afternoon.   Both men were shot multiple times and were taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

The incident started just before 4:30pm when police received a 911 call from a woman who said two men had been shot at a house in the 300 block of NE151 St.   When police arrived they found the two men in the front yard each with multiple gunshot wounds.

Detectives learned that the suspect, who is known to the victims, had gone to the house looking for the victims before the shooting occurred. Witnesses said after the shooting the suspect ran to a nearby vehicle and drove away from the scene.  The suspect vehicle was described as a black Chevrolet Malibu or Monte Carlo, with dark tinted windows and custom wheels.

The victims are 25 and 27 years old.  One of the victims lives at the house where the shooting occurred.  Detectives have not released a suspect name or motive for the shooting.
