According to sheriff’s office spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe, deputies responded to reports of a drive-by shooting just after 2 p.m. Wednesday in the 3500 block of 164th Street Southwest.

The location of the incident,

Several juveniles were walking on the sidewalk when two of them, a boy and a girl, were struck by gunfire from a passing vehicle. The group of juvenile victims then returned gunfire at the suspect vehicle.

Both victims were transported by aid to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Two nearby houses were also struck by gunfire.
