On Jan. 26, a shooting took place at a homeless camp in Seattle, known as "The Jungle," which left two people dead and three wounded. Yesterday, authorities brought in three teenage suspects - 13, 16 and 17-year-old boys - who were found at another homeless camp nearby, according to the Examiner.
Police believe the suspects know each other and that the shooting occurred because of a disagreement about a drug deal. "There are no outstanding suspects that we're aware of," confirmed Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The two victims - identified as 45-year-old Jeannine L. Zapata and 33-year-old James Q.Tran - were found with multiple gunshot wounds to their backs, abdomens and chests, according to the Examiner.
"They are certain at least two of the teenagers fired weapons that night," added O'Toole, according to the Examiner.
"Those wounded remain at the hospital with a man and woman in satisfactory condition, the other woman wants to keep her condition private," said Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg, according to USA Today.
The city is continuing its assessment of the encampment.
