Suspect arrested in early-morning shooting that killed 1 woman

One woman is dead and another in custody after an early-morning shooting. From King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West:

The shooting happened just before 1 am in the parking lot of the Avenue Apartments in the 10700 block of 14th Ave SW [map]. Police responded to the complex after receiving numerous 911 calls of a shot being heard.

When police arrived they found a 28 year old woman lying in the parking lot suffering from a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Another 28-year-old, who reportedly fired the shot, was taken into custody at the scene and transported to Highline Hospital with minor injuries from the fight.

Detectives learned the women knew each other and had been at a party at a nearby apartment prior to the shooting. Detectives are interviewing witnesses to determine what led up to the shooting.

Sgt. West says the suspect will be booked later this morning for investigation of murder.
