Aaron told The B-Town Blog that a neighbor reported hearing 8 to 9 shots fired just prior to the accident. Following the accident, she saw two males running from the blue van through her backyard. Burien Police identified six shell casings on the floor of the van during their preliminary search. Police said that the accident was related to the shots fired on the car. “One of the fleeing vehicles crashed and there were minor injuries,” Capt. Bryan Howard said. “Shell casings were recovered inside of it.” No additional information was released. ]]>
