Troopers went to meet the victim at a Starbucks on First Avenue South at 9:30 p.m. after the victim called 911.

The victim, who was driving a 2006 Toyota Camry, said that the driver of a Chevrolet Impala, a black man with a bandana covering his mouth, had fired at their Camry on westbound SR 518 at Des Moines Memorial Drive.

The victim said that before the shot was fired, the Impala had been following the Camry extremely close, so they slowed. 

The driver of the Impala then pulled up next to the victim and showed a handgun.  

The driver of the Impala subsequently pulled behind the Camry and fired one shot, which struck the right rear wheel well, before exiting to Des Moines Memorial Drive at a high rate of speed.

State patrol detectives are seeking any witnesses or information about the suspect or vehicle involved in the shooting.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Mauro at 425-401-7746 or by email at victoria.mauro@wsp.wa.gov.
