(Added: WCN photo)

10:16 PM: King County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating a shooting in the 10000 block of 1st SW (map), and they say it’s turned deadly – the 26-year-old man who was shot has died. KCSO says via Twitter that they don’t know yet what led up to the shooting; their detectives are on scene.

1:30 AM: KCSO spokesperson Sgt. Ryan Abbott told us detectives would likely be there for hours, so we stopped while out on something else. Photo added above. The street is blocked off in a residential neighborhood we’d describe as east White Center.

  1. Any news?

  2. Marlene Allbright Says:

    We’ve become so inured by these shootings, myself included, that we’re not shocked by it anymore. I have to shake myself and remember this wasn’t just a 26 year old male. He was a young man who probably had a family that loved him, and was cut down in the prime of his life. Thank you, White Center Now, for covering this. I’ve had a hard time finding any further information about it.

  3. Have they released the name of the victim yet?

  4. The sheriff’s office never sent the promised news release. At this point I don’t expect to be able to get followup information until Monday.

  5. Any new updates?

  6. I have asked. No reply so far.
