The King County Sheriff’s Office/Burien Police said that a road rage incident turned into a shootout between two cars on 1st Ave South near SW 124th Street in Burien Wednesday afternoon, April 11. “The occupants of the second vehicle returned fire and then crashed into two parked cars and a fence,” Sgt. Ryan Abbott said. “No one injured, and the other vehicle fled the scene.” Parts of 1st Ave S. were closed from SW 116 to SW 124 Streets for an investigation. Police add that there were no gunshot victims, and no information has yet been released about the suspects. At least one car was struck by a bullet. Here’s more info, along with a photo and raw video courtesy Photographer Aaron Wells from near the scene:

One victim with non-life threatening injuries transported to Highline Medical Center in Burien. White car with 4-5 suspects fled northbound on 1st Ave. S. 1st Ave. S. remains closed from S. 124th to S. 118th. Also, at approximately 4:30 p.m., a second shooting was reported in the 1400 block of SW 150th St. Burien PD confirms this is a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The victim was apparently found by his mother. Due to the nature of this second incident, I have no imagery or further details.
One area resident told The B-Town Blog:
“Cop with a bulletproof vest walking in the middle of the street. Something definitely went down.”
