Woman Wounded in West Seattle Shooting

A 37-year-old woman was wounded in a shooting early Wednesday in West Seattle.

Around 1:30 AM, a 21-year-old man called 911 and reported that his mother had been shot in the 4200 block of Southwest Dawson Street. Officers found the woman leaning up against a car on the street.

Police learned the man and his mother were outside on the street when the man began talking to five known people in a car. The conversation turned into a dispute and one person in the vehicle fired a gun at the man, missing him and striking his 37-year-old mother.

Seattle Fire Department medics transported the woman to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Detectives are investigating.
