EDMONDS, Wash. - Edmonds police say a possible road rage incident ended in a two-car crash and gunshots fired early Thursday.

Officers were called to the Firdale area about 12:45 a.m. for a report of speeding cars and gunshots and found a crash in the 9600 block of 240th Street Southwest. They interviewed one person who remained at the scene.

That person told police that someone fired shots from a vehicle during some sort of traffic altercation.

At least two people were seen running away from the crash scene but could not be found by a K-9 unit.

Shell casings, two guns and two vehicles were seized as evidence at the scene.

Investigators said they only received limited information from the driver that remained at the crash site.

Detectives will apply for warrants to search the vehicles and also work to determine if there is any relationship to a report of shots fired in Mountlake Terrace just a few minutes before the Edmonds incident.

No one is known to be injured and there have been no arrests.

Anyone with information about the incident or the people involved is asked to call the Edmonds police tip line at 425-771-0212 or email epdtips.edmondswa.gov.
