The King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that a 17-year old Burien male was arrested Wednesday for the shooting death of a man near the Alturas apartments Tuesday night, Jan. 3.

As we previously reported, police responded to a 911 call in the 13700 block of Ambaum Blvd. SW Tuesday night (Jan. 3) to reports of shots being fired.

When police arrived they found a man lying on a walkway with at least one gunshot wound. The man – whose identity has not yet been released – died at the scene.

Witnesses told police three men were seen running from the area after the shooting. Three men matching the descriptions were stopped and detained nearby shortly after the shooting.

Detectives released two of those men last night but arrested the third, a 17-year old Burien male, and booked him into the Youth Services Center for Investigation of Murder.

Detectives have not yet released details about a motive for the shooting.
