18-Year Old Man Dies From Overnight SeaTac Shooting
According to the King County Sheriff’s Department, an 18 year-old man was shot in SeaTac last night around 11:30pm, and subsequently died at Burien’s Highline Medical Center.
The victim was riding in the back seat of a car that was southbound on Military Road South. Four friends were with him in the car. A second vehicle began following the victimâ€™s car but turned off at South 140th; as it did, several rounds were fired and the male victim was hit.
The men drove straight to Highline Medical Center and the man collapsed in the entrance to the Emergency Room. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
The dead man is believed to be from California and was in the area visiting relatives.
All the people in the victim’s car were male and in their late teens or early 20s.
There is no description of the suspect vehicle, and no apparent motive for the shooting.
