Shooting at apartment injures one in Burien Thursday afternoon 3

BREAKING: A shooting at an apartment building in Burien injured one Thursday afternoon, Sept. 28.

Police say the call came in about 4:45 p.m. from the Burien Apartment Homes (photo above) in the 15600 block of 4th Ave SW (map below).

The victim suffered “very minor injuries” to his hand.

“He was not hit with a bullet, but something the bullet struck flew off and hit his pinky finger,” Sgt. Cindi West told The B-Town Blog.

The victim did not go to a hospital for treatment, and an EMT put a band-aid on it.

West added that the suspect is the victim’s friend, and has a history of paranoid type mental health issues.

One person is in custody.

It’s likely that the helicopter (apparently from a Seattle TV station) seen/heard over Burien was related to this incident.
