Mother, son accused of being in stolen car fired upon by Seattle police

Seattle police gather behind crime-scene tape at Eastlake Avenue East and East Lynn Street Sunday night after officers opened fire on a car they say backed suddenly toward them. The black Subaru Impreza sped off after the shooting, but was recovered Monday in North Seattle.
