Two teens shot behind King County aquatic center in Federal Way

Police encouraging anyone with information to call 911

Federal Way Police officers are seeking information regarding a shooting that took place Wednesday morning behind the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center during which two teens were seriously injured.

According to police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock in an email, at 9:40 a.m., officers responded to the shooting in the back parking lot of the aquatic center, 650 SW Campus Drive, Federal Way. Two 17-year-old males, who had been shot, were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries.

Schrock said the victims are known to police, and this is not a random incident. After a preliminary investigation, officers learned the victims were at the aquatic center to meet the suspects, and an altercation broke out.

As of early Wednesday afternoon, police had taken two 18-year-old men into custody to be interviewed at the police station, Schrock said. The suspect vehicle had also been located, and police were no longer actively searching for suspects in the case, she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or send an anonymous tip to safecityfw.com/.

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