A man was transported to Harborview Medical Center early Thursday afternoon after he was injured during a fight in front of the concession stand at the Renton Transit Center on Burnett Avenue South, according to Terri Vickers, a spokeswoman for the Renton Police Department.

Responding officers and fire crews found the man unconscious. He was treated by medics.

"We have conflicting witness statements, some saying the man being questioned was the primary aggressor and some saying the man being questioned was defending himself," Vickers said.
