LYNNWOOD — Police are investigating two apparently unrelated drive-by shootings in residential areas that sent three people to hospitals Wednesday night.
In one incident, two young adults were shot. Lynnwood police said they weren’t yet sure what happened at about 8:30 p.m. near the intersection of Olympic View and Blue Ridge drives.
Two occupants of a vehicle sustained gunshot wounds, Lynnwood police Commander Sean Doty said in a news release. An 18-year-old woman was shot in the neck and was in critical condition. A man in his 20s was shot in the arm. They were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Investigators think the shooter or shooters might have known the victims. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Sgt. Doug Teachworth at 425-670-5616, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
In the other shooting, in the middle of the night and about a mile away, near 173rd Place Southwest and 60th Avenue West, a man was looking for his dog when he was shot by someone in a vehicle, Lynnwood police said in a tweet. He had a back wound and was taken to a nearby hospital. As in the earlier shooting, there was no suspect information.
