SEATTLE - Detectives are investigating after a young woman was shot in the head Saturday morning in Rainier Valley.

The woman, in her 20s, was shot at from a moving car near a house in the 4500 block of South Willow Street just after 2 a.m., Patrick Michaud with the Seattle Police Department says.

The woman had been a passenger in another vehicle, Michaud says. Medics transported her to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses say they heard at least a dozen gun shots as both cars drove through the area at a high rate of speed.

Detectives with SPD's gang unit are interviewing witnesses and say they are working to develop a suspect description.
