Two men found with gunshot wounds in Federal Way and Kent

Police believe the victims were involved in the same shooting.

Federal Way police responded to a shooting with uncooperative victims in the early morning hours Tuesday.

Two men with gunshot wounds were found in Federal Way and Kent on May 4, and while one man said he was shot in Federal Way, both victims refused to offer further information about where and how their injuries occurred, police said.

Around 2 a.m. May 4, Federal Way officers were dispatched to an apartment complex in the 2200 block of S. Star Lake Road for reports of a shooting. A witness stated they could see a man walking through the complex who appeared to be injured, according to Cmdr. Kurt Schwan of Federal Way police.

Officers arrived and contacted a man in his early 30s with apparent gunshot wounds to his arm and abdomen. The man was uncooperative and provided false information about how and where the incident had occurred, Schwan said.

The man was transported to Harborview Medical Center in serious, but stable condition.

While investigating this incident, Federal Way officers were contacted by the Kent Police Department and told that around 2:30 a.m., Kent police had located a man in his early 30s near the 600 block of Railroad Avenue South with an apparent gunshot wound to his arm.

This man stated he had been shot at the Redondo Heights Park & Ride in the 27600 block of Pacific Highway South in Federal Way. He then refused to provide any additional information and was transported to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition, Schwan said.

Federal Way police believe the victims were involved in the same shooting, but do not know the extent of their involvement at this time, he added.

Officers were able to locate the scene of the shooting at the Redondo Heights Park & Ride. Detectives from Federal Way’s Criminal Investigations Section have responded and are actively assisting with this investigation.
