On 06-26-2022 at 0150 hours, a victim family reported that they were traveling Southbound in the 3600 block of E Marginal Way S having just exited from SR99. As they were driving, they were caught in the middle of two vehicles engaged in a rolling gun battle. The victims had minimal descriptors for the suspect vehicles and could only state that there were two suspect vehicles, a white Dodge sedan and black unknown sedan. The victim vehicle was struck by gunfire that hit the trunk and back window of the vehicle. The round that hit the trunk travelled through the trunk and firewall before fragmenting and striking the victim female seated in the backseat of the vehicle. The round that hit the back window likely traveled straight through the vehicle and out the front windshield, narrowly missing the 8-year-old child also seated in the backseat and the male driver. The victims drove from the location of the incident out of Seattle and into KCSO jurisdiction where they stopped for contact with SPD. Officers arrived and provided immediate medical aid for the female victim who had injuries to her back. Valley Fire responded and transported the female victim, who was stable at the time of transport, to HMC. Officers recovered several bullet fragments as evidence from the seat in which the victim had been seated. An extensive area check of the described location was conducted but no specific scene or additional suspect information could be determined. This incident was screened with GVRU. Patrol processed the victim vehicle.
