The Washington State Patrol today released a sketch of a man suspected of shooting and injuring two teenagers during a road-rage incident earlier this week on state Route 167 near Sumner.

The victims – an 18-year-old man and 17-year-old girl – were driving south on SR 167 just before 2 a.m. Monday when another vehicle drove up behind them and passed their vehicle. The suspect drove in the left inside shoulder area and nearly caused a crash, troopers said.

As the teens got off SR 167 at state Route 410, the suspect reportedly rolled down the passenger side window and fired a shot at the victims.

The bullet went through the passenger door, struck the man in the forearm and then hit the girl in the back.

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a black 2009 or newer model Mazda 6. The shooter is described as white with dark hair.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call detectives at 253-538-3172.

    Wow, that is one ugly dude.
    Looks like the product of a brother/sister marriage.
    Having to look at that face in the mirror every morning could explain some of the rage…and then not to be able to drive…and then to shoot two teenagers in a car…one sad, inbred…

    i had someone today running their mouth to me while i was driving….that dude in the sketch wouldve just shot em’…and i wish he wouldve..

  3. wow…real tough guy. one more little boy who didn’t get enough attention from his mommy.

  4. From the sketch it looks like there was a forceps incident at his birth.

  5. can’t figure why they call stupid and angry “road rage”. Has nothing to do with the road.

  6. Skinner, Normally you would be correct, but the Highway 16 Sprague exit is the exception…

    What a surprise. A pissed off young white guy with a goatee driving an import. That’s the new stereotype. If they racially profiled for this, they would never find an end to the lineup they would have.

  8. Reaganomics says:

    Doesn’t look a bit like GW Bush. The libs were all trying to pin it on him.

  9. discocheese says:

    Does he have strabismus?

  10. Why were these kids on the road at 2am?
