Woman Grazed by Bullet While Riding Metro Bus

Detectives are investigating after a woman was grazed by a bullet while riding a Metro bus through North Seattle Friday night.

Officers began receiving calls of shots fired just before 9:40 p.m. Friday in the 6000 block of Aurora Ave. North.  When they arrived on scene, they found a woman who had been grazed by a bullet while on a bus full of people.

A witness said that two men were standing outside a car arguing with two people inside the car.  As they argued, a bus approached a nearby stop at Linden Ave. North and North 66th St.   One of the men inside the car began shooting at the two men on foot. The two men outside the car began running toward the bus and were able to get onto the bus as the bus sped away. Realizing that a bullet grazed a woman on the bus, causing a cut to her head, the driver stopped the bus a few blocks away.

Officers rushed to the scene to find only one of the two men still on the bus.  Officers continue to question him in an attempt to gain a clear picture of what lead up to the shooting.  A witness described the shooter as a black male in his late teens wearing a grey hoodie. The suspects were last seen in a silver sedan possibly resembling a late 90s Ford Focus.

Seattle Fire department Medics responded and treated the woman at the scene before transporting her to Harborview Medical Center for evaluation.

The Gang Unit is taking the lead in this investigation and anyone with information in this case is asked to call 911 and speak with officers.
