Seattle police investigating fatal shooting of Federal Way man

Someone called 911 about an illegal discharge approximately 100 yards from the victim’s Federal Way home; police are trying to determine if the shooting happened in Federal Way.

Seattle police are investigating a homicide after a 25-year-old Federal Way man was shot in his chest on Tuesday.

The man was dropped off at Harborview Medical Center on Tuesday and died later that day as a result of his injury, according to Federal Way police Cmdr. Kurt Schwan.

The Seattle Police Department contacted Federal Way police about a homicide investigation after he was pronounced dead.

Detectives are trying to determine when and where the shooting took place.

While the male had a Federal Way address in the 1000 block of SW 314th St., Schwan said no 911 calls had been made from the victim’s residence about a shooting in Federal Way. However, he stated there was one call in the vicinity about a potential illegal discharge approximately 100 yards from the victim’s house.

The Seattle police are continuing the investigation with a liaison detective from FWPD assisting, Schwan stated.

Seattle police could not be reached for immediate comment.

This is an ongoing investigation and more information will be released when it becomes available.
