A driver and a passenger were struck by gunfire while driving down Interstate 5 early Tuesday morning in south King County.

According to the Washington State Patrol, someone called 911 at 12:55 a.m. to report being shot while driving down I-5 near SR 516.

The victims told investigators that they were headed northbound on I-5 when a car drove up on the driver's side and opened fire striking the passenger before another car pulled up and shot the driver.

Troopers said the driver suffered a gunshot wound to the left shoulder and the passenger in the forearm. Medics took them both to Seattle's Harborview Medical Center. Their injuries were not life-threatening.
