One dead after possible drive-by shooting in Federal Way

A man in his 20s was killed in a shooting at the Westway community park on Tuesday night.

One man is dead after a possible drive-by shooting in Federal Way on Tuesday night.

Federal Way officers responded to a shooting in the Westway neighborhood of Federal Way just after 9 p.m. on April 28. The incident occurred at the community park located at 2400 SW 334th Street.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a male victim in his 20s with an apparent gunshot wound, according to preliminary information from FWPD Cmdr. Kurt Schwan. Although life-saving aid was rendered, the man died at the scene.

Based on information gathered, it appears the gunshots may have come from a vehicle driving by the park, Schwan said. There is no known motive for this incident at this time.

Shortly after the fatal shooting, a man (age unknown) arrived at St. Francis Hospital with a gunshot wound to his hand. Officers are still attempting to determine if the incidents are related.

Detectives are responding to assist with this investigation, Schwan said.

Last week on April 20, a 19-year-old man was fatally shot at the Westway Community Center, which is located a few blocks away from the community park.
