Two dead in Seattle shooting spree


Two men were killed after a carjacking, shooting and car crash in Seattle, Washington Wednesday afternoon. 

 Two other people were shot and injured. One suspect is in police custody. 

 The shooting started when a 33-year-old man walked out of a home around 4 p.m. and tried to carjack a vehicle. Police said the man shot a 56-year-old female driver before walking into the street and shooting at a Metro bus driving by.

The bus driver on Metro Route 75 was shot in the torso, but managed to turn the bus around and drive away from the gunman. The bus driver, identified as 53-year-old Eric Stark, walked to medics for help and was taken to Harborview Medical Center. Metro said 12 people were on board the bus, but no passengers were hurt.

 After shooting at the bus, the suspect approached a second vehicle and shot the driver of a red Prius, killing the 50-year-old male driver. 

 Police arrived on the scene and tried making contact with the suspect. The suspect climbed into the Prius and sped away from police.
