SEATTLE - Police are investigating after two male teen, ages 14 and 19, were shot and crashed in Seattle's Columbia City neighborhood Friday night.

It happened just before 6:00 p.m. Friday, along Martin Luther King Jr. Way S. at S. Edmunds St.

Witnesses said the victims were traveling southbound on MLK Way when the vehicle they were in was shot at by another vehicle near on S. Snoqualmie St.

Police said the victim driver then sped off and hit three cars before stopping ant MLK Way and S. Edmunds St.

Both boys were injured in the shooting and taken to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives said the suspect vehicle, a black sedan, was last seen headed west on S. Snoqualmie St.

Part of MLK Way S. was shut down right from S. Alaska St. to S. Ferdinand St. Drivers for about two hours while police investigated and cleared the scene. Sound Transit Link light rail service was also temporarily suspended while the crash scene was cleared.
