The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is reporting that a drive-by shooting on southbound I-5 near SR 900 (map below) sent a driver to the hospital with life-threatening injuries Friday night, July 7, 2023.

Troopers say that just after 8 p.m. on Friday night, WSP communications received a 9-1-1 call stating that their brother was shot as they were driving southbound I-5 near SR 900 and they were at a Chevron station off the freeway.
