A 24-year-old Kent man was shot and wounded in Tukwila during a confrontation at about 1:36 a.m. Friday in a parking lot in the 14600 block of Tukwila International Boulevard.
The Kent man sat in the front passenger seat of a vehicle stopped in the parking lot when another vehicle occupied by four men and a female pulled up next to him, according to a Tukwila Police media release. The man had a previous argument with one of the four men in the car. One of the men then shot the Kent man once in the torso, causing serious injury.
After being shot, the man stumbled into the Shell station at 14620 Tukwila International Blvd. An employee called 911 for help. Officers found the man still conscious and Tukwila Fire Department and paramedics treated the man. Paramedics transported the man to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Tukwila detectives are investigating the shooting and trying to track down the man who fired the gun.
