Sheriff’s deputies investigate mystery shooting

King County Sheriff’s Office says a man was shot in the leg in White Center this morning – but nobody is sure yet how he got shot:

On 1/3/12 around 445 in the morning we responded to a call of a shooting in the area of the 9800 block of 15 ave SW. When we arrived we found a 42 year old Burien man with an apparent shotgun wound to the leg.

A witness said he saw the victim and another man talking and then heard a loud bang. One of the males left the area and the other was on the ground with an injured leg from the shotgun. The injured man was unable to tell deputies what happened. The shotgun was recovered nearby.

Unknown at this time how the man was shot.
