Shortly after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning (April 12), a shooting was reported at the AM/PM Mini Market on Ambaum Blvd. SW and SW 136th Street in Burien (map below).
Police received numerous 9-1-1 calls of shots being fired in that area, and when they arrived they found a man in the parking with at least one gunshot wound.
Medics attempted treatment but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives said the victim was at the store and appeared to be waiting for someone when at least two suspects approached the area and shot at him. The suspects then ran behind the store and jumped into an unknown vehicle and fled.
Detectives are investigating to see if this shooting is gang related or connected to the Federal Way and Seattle homicides that occurred within hours of this shooting.
Sgt. Cindi West told The B-Town Blog that the victim may have been waiting for someone around the side of the market, and that multiple suspects fired shots.
Police have video surveillance footage, which they have not yet released.
“This may be gang related, and we’re not sure if it’s related to other shootings in the area,” West added.
Police say that the victim was shot at least once.
No suspect information has been released, and no one has been arrested.
