Renton man shot in the face, police investigating

A Renton resident suffered a shotgun wound to the face and is in critical condition, while police are still investigating the incident.

The Renton Police Department released a press statement on Tuesday regarding a shooting that occurred on Monday, Nov. 11. Officers were dispatched just before 7 a.m. to the 800 block of Camas Avenue Northeast where they found the victim, a 39-year-old man, on his porch. Responders transported him to Harborview Medical Center where he is still listed in critical condition.

According to police, an unknown woman who was an acquaintance of the male homeowner came to the house and an argument began. The homeowner told the woman to leave and he began pushing her out his front door. An unknown man who arrived with the woman fired a gun into the victim’s home striking another family member, the victim.

Investigators have no description of the shooter and only vehicle was described as an 1980s Toyota Corolla, which fled the scene in an unknown direction.

An investigation is underway and more detail may be released in the future. Anyone with information about the case including any possibly video from a security camera should call Detective Renggli at 425-430-7525. Callers should reference case No. 19-12707.
