No arrests in July 27 shooting

• No arrests in shooting

About 5:30 p.m. Friday, July 27, police responded to a shooting in the 800 block of SW 308th Street in Federal Way.

Police found a man lying outside his vehicle when they arrived at the scene, police spokeswoman Stacy Flores said. The 31-year-old male was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life-threatening injuries as a result of a single gunshot wound, she said.

A K-9 unit was called in from the Renton Police Department to track two possible suspects, both white males seen walking in the area at the time of the shooting. As of July 30, the suspects had not been captured. The witness who saw the suspects reported hearing the gunshot, then seeing the men flee the area, Flores said. A motive for the shooting has not been determined, Flores said. The Federal Way Criminal Investigation Section is looking further into the crime. Police encourage anyone with information about the shooting to call 911.
