Police still investigating Walmart parking lot shooting

A teenage boy was shot inside his vehicle, causing him to crash into the store.

No motive or suspect has been identified in the shooting and killing of a 16 year old from Sunday, Jan. 20, Renton police Cmdr. Dave Leibman said.

At 2:10 p.m. Sunday in the Walmart parking lot along Rainier Avenue, an altercation occurred with multiple subjects, according to Renton police.

The victim was shot inside the car, and then drove his vehicle into the building. He suffered a gunshot wound to the chest.

The young man was rushed to Harborview Medical Center but died the same day.

The Walmart was closed following a fire that had occurred in the store the night before. The fire was going to take one to two days to cleanup before reopening, according to a Twitter post from Renton police over the weekend.

The investigation is still ongoing, and police have been working leads throughout the night, Leibman said.

Anyone with information who hasn’t spoken to police is asked to call 425-235-2121 and reference case 19-831.
