REPORT: Six shots fired in parking lot Wednesday night
BTB Reader Lisa Bosques reports that there was a shooting in Burien Wednesday (May 21) in a parking lot located at 17730 Des Moines Memorial Drive South.
“My husband and son (who was holding the letter from Sylvester Middle School about the boy and his gun) were waiting for me in the parking lot, and a car drove by and fired at least 6 shots into the parking lot between my office and the My Goods Market convenience store (177th and Ambaum Blvd S),” Lisa said in a Comment. “We left but my coworker saw the police come to search the parking lot and put up crime tape. I am hoping to get more info about this incident and find out if these guys were caught.”
We contacted Capt. Bryan Howard of the Burien Police Department, who said:
“Yes there were shots fired there.
One male was hit, he drove himself to the hospital for treatment. It was not life-threatening.
Deputies are still working to sort out what happened but at this time it doesn’t appear this was random as the parties involved may know each other.”
