Woman suffers minor injury in drive-by shooting

By Seattle Times staff

Police are investigating a drive-by shooting early this morning in South Seattle that left one woman injured.

At 3:39 a.m., a 911 call came in reporting that shots had been fired near 32nd Avenue South and South Atlantic Street, said police department spokesman Jeff Kappel.

It appears that two groups of people, in two separate cars, were arguing, he said. As the exchange grew more heated, someone from one car fired shots at the other vehicle three times.

The car that was hit sped off to a nearby residence and someone — it's not clear who — called 911, Kappel said. After officers arrived, they found the woman in the car had suffered a minor injury to her back. It's unclear if the injury was caused by a bullet or glass shrapnel, Kappel said.

Police have no description of the other car or the people inside it. Gang unit detectives are "actively investigating," Kappel said.
