SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Police say two people were arrested after a man shot another man who he says was driving his brother’s stolen car.
KOMO-TV reports just after 4 p.m. Saturday, police say a 61-year-old man was following his brother’s stolen vehicle as it was being driven through a South Park neighborhood. The man fired his .45 caliber handgun at the stolen vehicle but hit his own vehicle’s side mirror.
Police say the man continued to follow the stolen vehicle when the driver of the car lost control and hit a truck driving on East Marginal Way South.
The occupants of the truck did not have any significant injuries, but the stolen vehicle rolled and landed on its roof, police say.
The driver of the stolen car got out of the vehicle and attempted to run away but was shot in the leg by the man with gun. Police say he was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries and will be booked into King County Jail.
The 61-year-old man was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of assault.
Police impounded the involved vehicles while detectives investigate.
