Two Young Women Shot in Rainier Beach Robbery

Detectives are investigating after two young women were shot in an apparent robbery Friday evening in Rainier Beach. 

Around 8pm, two female victims—a 17-year-old and a 19-year-old—got off a bus near 9200 block of Rainier Avenue South and were walking southbound when a group of four or five suspects approached them.

The suspects told the victims to give them any valuables they were carrying before shooting both women.

Both victims were later transported to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police spoke with witnesses and gathered evidence at the scene and are investigating.
