SHORELINE, Wash. -- A 17-year-old girl was fatally shot and an 18-year-old man was critically wounded when someone opened fire on their car early Wednesday.

The shooting happened about 12:30 a.m. in an apartment building parking lot in the 300 block of NW Richmond Beach Road in Shoreline, located in the Puget Sound area just east of Seattle.

As officers were rushing to the scene, they got a 911 call from the young man who had been shot saying he and the female victim were driving to the Shoreline Police Department.

Police stopped the vehicle near the intersection of 185th and Aurora, where medics arrived to take both of the shooting victims to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The girl died at the hospital and the man was taken into surgery in critical condition.

Both had been shot multiple times and officials said the car they were in was riddled with bullet holes.

Neighbors at the Maplewood Court Apartments where the shooting happened said they heard screaming and multiple gun shots, but it was not clear what prompted the attack.

Officials said they think they know who may be responsible, but no arrests have been made.

The name of the girl who was killed has not been released.
