LAKEWOOD, Wash. (AP) - A brother and sister have pleaded not guilty to assault charges that resulted from a Lakewood shooting.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1GuKCl7 ) that 19-year-old Lacee Abelson and 24-year-old Alex Abselson entered their pleas Wednesday.

Pierce County prosecutors charged both with first-degree assault. Lacee Abelson is also charged with felony harassment.

The shooting happened Sunday outside the apartment Lacee Abelson shares with the victim’s girlfriend.

Details are sketchy, but it occurred after an argument between Lacee Abelson and the victim. Charging documents say the victim broke a window in Abeldon’s car and she called her brother to come over and “smoke” the victim.

A fight involving a knife ensued and the victim told police Alex Abelson shot him in the back.
