A Seattle man and woman were charged with first-degree assault Friday in a Sept. 20 shooting incident on Highway 99 in Lynnwood.
A 45-year-old Edmonds woman was severely injured. The woman remains at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in satisfactory condition, a nursing supervisor said Friday night.
Charged are Marquin Emanuel Robinson and Christine Lynn Woolridge, both 29. They are both being held on $100,000 bail.
According to charging papers, the woman may have been shot in revenge for cheating a drug dealer.
The victim and a male companion had been driving on Highway 99 when a black car pulled up beside them. The woman, who had been driving, recognized Robinson because he had sold them drugs before, and she knew he could be angry because he was cheated, charging papers said.
When she was shot with a .45 caliber pistol, her male companion got behind the wheel and drove her to Stevens Memorial Hospital in Edmonds, where she was initially treated.
The wounded woman required life-saving surgery. Her heart stopped twice while at the hospital, court papers said. She remained in a coma for several days.
Her prospects for a full recovery are uncertain, papers said.
