UPDATE: Shooting in Burien Monday afternoon may be gang related, police say 1UPDATE 1/25/16 2:50 p.m.: Police say that a man who was found shot in Burien Monday afternoon (Jan. 25) may be the victim of gang related violence. Just before Noon Monday, police received a call about a man found shot. About the same time, they received a call from a witness who said a man showed up on his porch shot, from the same location. When deputies arrived, they found a 29-year old man who had gunshot wounds on each leg. The witness who called told police that the victim had been in a dark colored car as the passenger. The driver, an unknown Hispanic male, and the victim started fighting in the car, police said. “No shots were heard and we have not found anyone at this point that saw a shootout as initially reported,” Sgt. Cindi West said. The victim got out of the car and took off and ended up at the house where the witness called. The driver of the car drove off. “We have a possible suspect car near the Heights but have not confirmed that this is the actual car,” West added. Schools in the area were put into lockdown as a precaution. Police are investigating and looking into the possibility it could be gang related. The 29-year old victim is at Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries.
