Teen shot in the neck near Federal Way park

The 16-year-old boy is in stable condition, according to police.

One teenager was shot in the neck after a person shot at a group of people near a Federal Way park on May 21, according to police.

At about 7:30 p.m. near South 333rd Street and 22nd Avenue South, officers responded to reports of an illegal discharge, said Cmdr. Kurt Schwan of Federal Way Police.

On scene, officers found a 16-year-old boy with an apparent gunshot wound to his neck, Schwan said.

Police discovered a vehicle pulled up to the Cedar Grove Park and an unidentified man fired a weapon toward a group of people, one of the people being the 16-year-old, according to Schwan.

There were no other reported injuries.

First responders provided aid until the teen was transported to Harborview Medical Center for additional treatment.

He is in stable condition and his injury was non-life threatening, according to Schwan.
