Woman Shot by Teens with Pellet Rifle

A 30 year-old woman, 3 months pregnant, was shot in the shoulder late yesterday afternoon (December 21st) by two teenagers with a powerful pellet rifle. The woman was treated and released at Overlake Medical Center. The teens were arrested.

The incident occurred about 3:40 PM in the 18800 block of NE 165th St. in unincorporated King County, east of Woodinville.

The woman had just gotten off a bus and was walking to her nearby residence. She heard a “pop” and felt a stinging sensation in her shoulder. She continued home and determined she had been shot. Sheriff's deputies were called.

Deputies were told where the victim was when she was hit, and located two teenagers in a house at that location. One lives at the residence and the other was visiting. The boys are 16 and 15 years old respectively, and attend Woodinville High School.

After obtaining consent from the homeowner, deputies searched the house and found a pellet rifle and extra pellets inside the house. They also found possible stolen property taken in car prowls.

Both boys interviewed, then booked into the Youth Center for investigation of felony assault.
