14-year-old girl injured in shooting at Federal Way apartment

Girl transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries to her legs; police investigating circumstances of the shooting.

A 14-year-old girl was transported to the hospital after she was shot in her legs on Wednesday at a Federal Way apartment.

The girl suffered non-life threatening injuries from the gunshot wounds and is being treated at Harborview Medical Center, said Federal Way police Cmdr. Kurt Schwan.

South King Fire and Rescue and Federal Way police responded to the shooting at 12:33 p.m. at the Retreat at Maple Hill apartments at 1901 SW 320th St.

This incident allegedly was the result of what was supposed to be a fight between multiple individuals, Schwan said.

“All of the involved parties are known to each other,” he said. “This was not a random incident.”

At some point, one of the males who was supposed to be involved in the fight pulled out a handgun and fired two rounds, Schwan noted.

It is unclear if one, or both, of those rounds struck the female victim who was there to watch the fight.

Detectives are continuing their investigation into the incident and expect to soon identify all those involved.

No suspects are in custody and no further information is available at this time.

The Mirror will update this story when more information becomes available.
