Seattle police released this photograph, saying it shows one of the suspects in a home-invasion robbery on Tuesday, March 6, 2018.

SEATTLE -- Police released video Wednesday that shows a vehicle that may have been used in a home-invasion robbery in which a 71-year-old woman was pistol-whipped and shot in the shoulder.

Police also have released photos of one of the suspects in a car. Police believe it is a a red 2008-2010 Kia Spectra with aftermarket wheels.

Two men came up to the woman's husband Tuesday afternoon as he worked in the yard of his home in the 10700 block of Renton Avenue South. They asked him for money, then followed him inside the house where they fought with the man and his wife.

They fled.

On Wednesday, police released the surveillance video from a nearby home. Police say they believe a third person was driving a red or maroon sedan that the other men got out of and were later picked up by. Police say the car appears to be missing a right front hubcap.

He was wearing a white jacket and white pants and armed with a black handgun. The second suspect is also described as a light-skinned black teen. He is 5 feet 6 inches tall and skinny. He was wearing a blue jacket and dark pants. He has a mustache.

The woman who was shot remains in the hospital.

Police are looking for more information on the case, including home surveillance or dash cam video around the 10700 block of Renton Avenue South between 3:45 p.m. and 4:15 p.m.. If you can help, contact Robbery Detective Mike Magan at 206-684-5540.
