2 injured in Federal Way shooting

Police conducted K9 search but did not locate 2 male suspects.

Two young men sustained non-life-threatening injuries during a shooting in Federal Way Monday evening.

The incident occurred in the area of 21st Avenue Southwest and Southwest Campus Drive at approximately 7 p.m., according to Federal Way Police Department Commander Kurt Schwan.

Witnesses observed four male subjects, including the victims, together before the shooting happened. The victims, in their late teens to early 20s, are not cooperating with the investigation, Schwan said.

Police recovered two handguns at the scene and conducted a K9 search for the suspects, who were only described as an African-American male and a Samoan male in their late teens to early 20s, he said. However, police were unable to locate the suspects. Detectives will be assisting with this investigation.

The victims were transported to Harborview Medical Center to be treated for their injuries.

Schwan noted that it appeared that no other parties were injured during the incident.

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