Altercation, shooting at night club


Staff writer

Federal Way Police are searching for two men involved in the shooting of a third man at Caf»Arizona early in the morning Nov. 10.

Witnesses told police an altercation between the men preceded the shooting, which happened in the parking lot about 10 minutes before the club was supposed to close.

The suspects reportedly fled the club in a dark-colored sport utility vehicle.

When police arrived about 3:50 a.m., they found the victim lying on the ground in the parking lot with a single gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he was listed in serious condition.

A Harborview nursing supervisor said Monday afternoon he was in stable condition. His name and age were unavailable.

Police described the suspected shooter as black, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, heavy build and bald. A man who fled with the suspect is described as black, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a slender build.

Police Lt. Lee Leddy said Monday afternoon that no one had been arrested.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call the Federal Way Police Crime Information Line at 662-4588.
