Two men on their way to work were shot while driving on Interstate 5 south of Seattle early Tuesday morning, the state patrol said.
State Patrol Trooper Rick Johnson said the two men, both Boeing employees, were in a vehicle heading north on I-5 near the Highway 516 (Kent-Des Moines Road) exit. Around 1 a.m., shots were fired from two cars that passed the victims’ car on the right, one after another.
Shots from the first car struck the passenger in the arm; shots from the second hit the driver in the shoulder.
The victims were not able to describe the suspects’ vehicles other than to say they were both passenger cars.
Johnson said there was no indication the two victims had been specifically targeted.
Both men were conscious and speaking when medics arrived on scene and they were later taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
