Two People Shot In Rainier Beach

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee January 3, 2012

One woman was fatally shot and another man was wounded by gunfire on a busy south Seattle street Tuesday night.

The shooting happened just before 10 pm in the parking lot of a Subway sandwich shop near 52nd Ave. S. and Rainier Ave. S.

A woman in her 20s was fatally shot in the chest, police tell PubliCola. The male victim was shot in the back of the legs, but was able to run to nearby McDonald's. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Police say they are investigating whether the shooting was the result of a drug deal gone bad

More details as they become available.

Update: While police sources have told us the woman died at the scene, a police spokesman says the woman is in surgery at Harborview. We've modified the headline until we can clarify the woman's status.
