Teen girl nearly killed when bullets hit her Seattle home

A teenage girl was getting ready for bed in her Seattle home when gunfire erupted outside.  Several bullets flew through her window, nearly hitting her.

From the article:

The teenager, who asked not to be named, was about to go to bed when a bullet shattered her window. She dropped to the floor and ducked behind a dresser as several more bullets tore through her bedroom wall. Two of the rounds struck the drywall just above the pillows she would have been resting on had she been in bed. 
"It was pretty quick. It lasted just a few seconds. It was scary," said the girl, who thinks the shots may have been intended for another family member.

This is part of a rash of recent gun violence in the Seattle area.
