AUBURN, Wash. (KCPQ) – Police are searching for a man accused of shooting a woman as she fished with her husband in Washington state Thursday night.

Auburn Police Commander Steve Stocker said officers responded to reports of a shooting just before 11 p.m.

The couple were fishing along the Green River near 31500 104th Ave. SE when a truck approached, they told police. A man got out of the truck and started urinating next to the couple, prompting the man who was fishing to confront the man who was urinating.

"Do you mind, my wife is right here," he reportedly told the man.

The suspect in the truck allegedly fired several gunshots at the couple, striking the wife.

Her husband drove to a nearby 7-Eleven and called 9-1-1.  She was taken to Harborview Medical Center where she is listed in serious condition.

No arrests have been made.
