Story

On 04/09/2018 about 5:40 PM multiple 911 callers reported seeing a male shooting a gun towards a vehicle at Angle Lake Park located at 19500 BLK International Blvd S, in SeaTac.  KCSO/ SeaTac Police arrived and located numerous shell casings at the park but were unable to locate any victims.  Witnesses reported a male involved had just fled to a vehicle near the boat launch.  Police located the male who was identified as being involved.  A handgun was recovered on the suspect.  About an hour after the initial call, a local hospital advised two victim’s ages, 17 and 19 had just arrived with gunshot wounds.  Both males sustained non-life threatening injuries. 

At this point Detectives are continuing to investigate on what led up to the shooting, but it appears the suspects are possibly gang affiliated.  The information we have so far, some type of disturbance occurred in the park that lead up to the shooting.  Multiple shots were fired at the park, more suspects may still be outstanding.  The victims were driven to the Hospital by a friend. 

A house located across the lake from where the shooting occurred was struck by a stray bullet.  No one was injured in the home. 

Detectives continue to investigate.
