Tukwila parking dispute leads to gunfire

TUKWILA, Wash. (AP) - Police in the south Seattle suburb of Tukwila say an argument over a car blocking a road led two men to pulling out guns and fire at each other.

Police Cmdr. Eric Drever said officers who responded Tuesday afternoon to the report of gunfire found one man suffering from a single gunshot wound. That man was reported in stable condition Tuesday night at a hospital.

KOMO reports that both men are claiming self defense.

Drever says both are now cooperating with police.
