A 15-year-old was shot in the Target at The Landing Monday night.

The Renton Police Department arrived on the scene around 8 p.m., July 13 to reports of two to three gunshots heard inside and people running from the store. It was reported the shooter also left the scene.

Officers went inside to find one injured victim, the 15 year old, who was transported to Harborview with possible life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses told police that an argument took place between the victim and shooter beforehand and it appears they may have known each other.

Detectives ask any additional witnesses to the events to call 425-430-7500 and reference case 20-7418.
