At 2226 hours, officers responded to the 800 block of E Denny Way initially to a report of shots fired. As officers arrived in the area they heard a single gunshot, and the call was updated that a female in the apartments was shot in the neck. Officers entered the apartment and provided medical aid until she was transported to HMC in stable condition by the SFD. After a sweep of the apartment, officers determined the gunshot came from inside the apartment from a room adjacent to the victim. One of the occupants of the apartment fled prior to officers and arrival and sloughed a gun in the parking lot outside that was recovered by officers. Another occupant of the apartment was booked on unrelated warrants. GVRU responded to the scene.
