Update: in an email, police stated that the incident was not a drive-by shooting as originally claimed. This story has been updated to reflect that, and updated with additional details from a press release.

A parking lot shooting critically injured one, according to Renton Police Department, at Renton Village near 355 S. Grady Way.

The condition of the 20-year-old victim, who was transported to Harborview Medical Center, is unknown at this time. Earlier he had critical injuries, according to the police department.

The victim was shot around 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30 by the Wells Fargo Bank and Applebees at Renton Village, a shopping center on South Grady Way. Police arrived at the scene and saw the man laying next to his car with multiple gunshot wounds.

Originally police described two subjects, but now believe a male shooter approached the suspect‘s car and fired at him before fleeing on foot. Police do not believe this was a random shooting.

Two vehicles were observed leaving the scene and are either suspects or possible witnesses: a black sedan with no rear plate and the passenger side triangle window broken and taped, and a red truck.

Police are no longer stating that suspects fled northbound on Interstate-405 from the shooting.

Witnesses are asked to contact Det. Edwards at 425-430-7632, according to Renton police. Or call 425-430-7500 and reference case 19-11028.
