The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office believes that a drive-by triple shooting in Lynnwood is now believed to be gang-related.

Shots rang out around 4 near 158th and 35th Avenue. James Waak said a bullet came through his window, but no one in his home was hurt during the incident though.

“I heard a boom boom boom, and I was in the military and said, ‘man, that sounds like a .40 caliber,'” Waak told KIRO Newsradio.

The suspects fled in a vehicle.

Deputies arrived at the scene and found three people with gunshot wounds. Two guns were also found at the scene.

The three victims were hospitalized, two were taken to Providence Medical Center, and one was taken to Harborview Medical Center, and deputies said two of them are teenagers.

Snohomish County deputies said the victims are not cooperating with the investigation.

And in the meantime, deputies are looking for the suspects, they did not provide a description of them or how many there are.

KIRO 7 TV reported as many as two suspects jumped into the bay to escape. Police found a man in his 40s who reportedly swam back to a dock.

A Seattle Fire Department rescue swimmer searched the water near the marina for 20 minutes, but did not find a second person.

The investigation was turned over to Seattle Police.
