By and large, automotive enthusiasts have successfully established their hobby as a wholesome, legitimate and family-oriented activity with few exceptions. Take the La Raza Lowrider Show in Kent, Washington where a fight between unnamed individuals degraded into a shooting that saw 10 people wounded in the incident.

Victims at the lowrider gathering were taken to several different hospitals for treatment, with some individuals managing to drive themselves to the emergency room. The police say that multiple suspects are currently being investigated, and that the violence is likely gang-related, with the shootings possibly stemming from an argument over a car's paint job.

According to news reports, there were between 200 and 300 people in attendance and over 50 cars on display at the event when the shooting took place. Click past the jump for KOMO 4's local news coverage video of the event.

      La Raza sponsored event. Organization funded by taxpayer money bent on eliminating the US/Mexico border and supporting criminal activity of those who choose to disobey US law and reside here illegally. No surprise here. Reminds me of the cruise scene in Boyz-in-the-Hood.

      I live in Washington, Kent can be a dodgy area. You can see what kind of people frequent that area by the video, so I would say hardly shocking stuff here.

      Note - if they announce hip hop awards with a lowrider show, stay home!

      No surprise here, this is like saying somebody got stabbed at a rap concert. It's the kinda thing i would expect is the norm at a lowrider show.

        Please do not generalize. It makes you look quite ignorant.

      The lowrider scene is stupid and full of people from idiot gangs and/or from the fast and furious crowd that brag about how fast their cars can jump up or down. Pretty silly if you ask me. I also have the same thing for rapper who do some of the most tackiest stuff to such fine cars. Then again they can do w/e they want with their cars but at the end of the day, there is nothing really cool about any of these car cultures.

      If this all started over a paint job, that is seriously disturbing. Honestly, who the F*** cares that much about the paint on their car to start shooting people!?!? This is pathetic!

      Man that is a hard title to parse. I understand the need for an economy of words in titles but I think it could be better said as 'Washington state lowrider show results in 10 shot' or 'Fight at Washington state lowrider show results in 10 shot'
