September 21, 2018

SEATTLE (AP) — Officials say a 51-year-old woman was killed by a stray bullet from a gang-related drive-by shooting in a Seattle suburb.

The Seattle Times reports the stray bullet pierced the window of a Burien chiropractor’s office on Thursday, killing Gabriela D. Reyes.

Family and friends say she was a religious mother and grandmother known for her kindness and work on social-justice causes.

King County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ryan Abbott says a SWAT team arrested two teen suspects about six hours later.

He says a 39-year-old veteran of a rival gang was the intended target.

The man and his son ran from the gunfire, but remained at the scene and cooperated with detectives.

King County prosecutors say the teens are scheduled to appear in court Friday.
