Federal Way police are searching for a suspect who shot a woman in the parking lot at the Federal Way library on Monday night.
At approximately 6:40 p.m., Federal Way police were dispatched to the South 320th Street library for the shooting, according to Commander Kurt Schwan.
A woman in her 20s was shot in the leg and sustained life-threatening injuries while she was inside a vehicle, according to preliminary information. She was transported to Harborview Medical Center for further treatment.
While the circumstances surrounding this incident are still unclear, Schwan said it appears all the involved parties were inside the vehicle when the shooting occured. It is unclear how many people were in the car at the time of the shooting, and none of them were children, Schwan noted.
Detectives were still on scene after 10 p.m. assisting with the investigation.
