Federal Way police have arrested a suspect in a murder that occurred Saturday morning.

Officers responded to a reported shooting that occurred at 2:51 a.m. in the 32600 block of 16th Court Southwest in Federal Way. According to police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock, detectives’ preliminary investigation revealed a 21-year-old man had been shot at a party. Witnesses said the victim got into a fight with an 18-year-old male. The 18-year-old left the party but returned 15 minutes later with a handgun and shot the victim, police say.

The suspect fled on foot.

“Based on the cooperation of several witnesses on scene, officers and detectives were actively searching for the named suspect when he turned himself into police,” Schrock said in an announcement.

Police do not know the reason for the dispute at this time

Federal Way police are in the process of filing the case with King County prosecutors and expect charges this afternoon.

The Mirror will update this report as more information is available.
