Teen injured in Tacoma shooting

Tacoma police are investigating a shooting that left a teen injured Thursday night. 

After 7:30 p.m., officers responded to a two-car crash near South 21st Street and South J Street. 

When police arrived, they found a 13-year-old girl who had been shot. According to police, the teen was a passenger in one of the cars involved in a crash. Apparently, she had been shot before the crash happened. 

Police say her friends ran off and left her alone in the vehicle after the crash. 

She was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The investigation remains ongoing. 

This was the second shooting in Tacoma on Thursday. Earlier in the afternoon, a child was fatally shot on Portland Avenue.
