An elderly couple’s home in northern Seattle was targeted in a drive-by shooting Friday, apparently because they fly a pro-police flag.
Surveillance video showed a dark SUV driving up to the home, firing nine shots and driving away, KIRO-TV reported.
The couple believes they were targeted because of the “thin blue line” flag they flew in their yard to support the Seattle Police Department.
Six gunshots hit the home and their car, and one pierced through multiple walls.
“I went numb. This didn’t really happen, did it?” the man told KIRO.
The couple did not want to identify themselves for fear of retaliation if the shooter returns.
“I’m fearful because I don’t know who it would be that would get that angry,” the woman said.
