Shooting in Rainier Valley

On January 28th at approximately 10:59 p.m. officers responded to 911 calls of shots fired at Rainier Avenue South and South Othello Street.  Preliminary investigation indicates that the male victim and two of his friends were standing in a parking lot when they heard five to six gunshots.  They were all facing away from the street and immediately jumped a fence at the rear of the lot.

The victim was hit in the buttocks but ran for about a block before sitting down behind a house. Officers located the victim and SFD medics provided treatment before transporting him to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

No suspect or suspect vehicle description was given to investigating officers.

 Gang Unit detectives responded to the scene and continue to actively investigate.
