Accidental shooting injures man in parking lot of Elmer’s Pub
Just after 1 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2, an older man was accidentally shot in the thigh in the parking lot of Elmer’s Pub, located at 15027 Ambaum Blvd SW in Burien.
When deputies arrived they found a 66-year old Burien man inside the pub with a gunshot wound to his upper leg.
Apparently the man had been outside smoking with a friend when the topic of guns came up.
He then pulled a gun out of his car and accidentally shot himself.
He was taken to Harborview and is expected to survive.
A trusted source who was there said they didn’t hear a gunshot, and added “you wouldn’t know the victim was shot until he walked in.”
