Federal Way police nab suspects in 7-Eleven shooting

An altercation at a business near Military Road South led to multiple shots fired on April 9; three suspects booked into King County Jail.

Federal Way police have arrested three suspects involved in a shooting at a Federal Way 7-Eleven last week.

Around 7:40 p.m. on April 9, an altercation occurred in the 7-Eleven parking lot near Military Road S. and S. 288th Street. Shots were fired by multiple suspects who then fled on foot to a vehicle and shooting at another vehicle in the parking lot before leaving the area.

A man in his 40s sustained a non-life threatening injury to his arm due to physical assault by the same suspects, police said.

Over the span of the last several days, Federal Way Police Department detectives, with assistance from the U.S. Marshal’s Office, identified and arrested three suspects, according to FWPD Cmdr. Kurt Schwan.

Two of the suspects, both 27-year-old black males, were located and arrested on April 13, and the third suspect, a 24-years-old black male, was located and arrested yesterday afternoon (April 14).

All three have been charged with first degree assault and were booked into the King County Jail.
