MILL CREEK — Someone apparently shot a woman Tuesday night close to the Bothell-Everett Highway near Mill Creek.
The Kenmore woman, 24, was walking with her boyfriend when she heard a loud noise and felt something hit her knee around 6:14 p.m., according to the Mill Creek Police Department.
A driver stopped to take them to the Swedish Mill Creek hospital, where staff alerted police of the victim’s gunshot wound. She was alert when officers spoke with her but couldn’t specify the location beyond being near the highway, a gray gas station and several apartment buildings, police said. Police were unable to determine an exact address or location where the incident occurred.
Police want to speak with the driver and any other witnesses. Anyone with information about the incident can call Mill Creek detective Chris White, at 425-921-5759.
