Washington State Patrol Seek Witnesses in Seattle Shooting
The Washington State Patrol is asking for witnesses for what police describe as a road rage shooting. On Sunday, November 12, 2023, an incident occurred between two separate vehicles in downtown Seattle near the International District around 1 pm. Troopers report that a black Ford Explorer cut off a silver Mercedes, leading to the Mercedes following the Explorer onto I-90 heading east. After following the Explorer onto the highway, the driver of the silver Mercedes pulled alongside the Ford, pulled a gun out of the window, and fired multiple rounds. The Ford Explorer was hit multiple times by bullets. The silver Mercedes then exited quickly onto Rainer Ave at a nearby exit and out of sight after the shooting.
