Thurston County Sheriff's Office Seeks More Information About Shooting


The Thurston County Sheriff's Office is seeking more information about a Monday morning shooting because the victim's account of the incident is not adding up, a spokesman for the department said.

About 1 a.m. Monday, a 35-year-old woman was reportedly shot in the shoulder while driving in the 9100 block of Martin Way East, Lt. Cameron Simper said Tuesday.

According to the woman, another driver stopped to help her, and then that man offered to drive her to a hospital in her car, Simper said.

But after dropping the woman off at the hospital, the man drove off with her car, Simper said. The woman's car, an SUV, was found overnight Tuesday, he said.

The woman, who Simper described as uncooperative, has been released from the hospital after being treated.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the non-emergency dispatch line at 360-704-2740 or send an email to
