A 13-year-old girl was shot twice in front of her family in Seattle’s Yesler Terrace neighborhood Saturday night.

According to the Seattle Police Department’s SPD Blotter, prior to the shooting, a disturbance between the suspect, his girlfriend and the girlfriend’s family broke out around 10:30 p.m. During the argument, the suspect retrieved a handgun from his car and fired several shots toward the family members. The teen was struck once in each leg and was the only one injured.
