Police are investigating an apparent homicide after they found a 19-year-old man in a vehicle at a Federal Way apartment who was fatally shot Monday morning.
Shortly before 10 a.m., officers responded to reports of sounds of an illegal discharge in the area of the Silver Shadow Apartments at 27606 Pacific Highway S., according to FWPD Cmdr. Kurt Schwan
As police conducted a search of the area, officers located a vehicle at the complex with a 19-year-old male inside who had sustained an apparent gunshot wound, he noted.
Officers and South King Fire and Rescue personnel attempted life saving measures, Schwan stated, but the male was pronounced deceased at the scene.
This is the fourth fatal shooting in Federal Way in the last three weeks.
On Dec. 19, an 85-year-old woman was arrested after she allegedly shot and killed one of her roommates. On Dec. 22, a 19-year-old male was found shot in a car near the 33400 block of 23rd Ave SW and later died from his injuries, and a 23-year-old male was killed during an officer-involved shooting on Dec. 31.
Police do not have any suspect information.
