Renton Police investigators are seeking additional witnesses to a shooting at an apartment complex New Year's Eve just off Benson Highway that left a man in critical condition.

The victim, a 27-year-old man, called 911 at about 7:45 p.m. Dec. 31 to report he had been shot at the Summerhill Apartments, 10415 S.E. 174th St.

The man was shot in the abdomen and was in the intensive-care unit at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle Friday in critical but stable condition, according to the Renton Police Department.

He was also robbed by several men in the complex's parking lot, according to the Police Department. Police described the victim as a large white male in his late 20s with brown hair. He was driving a 2009, white, four-door Hyundai Sonata.
