19-year-old shot and killed in Skyway, south of Seattle

A 19-year-old man was shot and killed early Wednesday inside a Skyway apartment, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to the apartment in the 13400 block of Martin Luther King Jr. WaySouth  around 12:30 a.m. and found the victim with a gunshot wound to the chest, according to sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West.

When deputies also found four other adults in the apartment trying to help the victim, West said. Four children, ages 2 to 7, who were inside the apartment slept through the shooting, West said.

A neighbor told deputies that she reported seeing two men run from the building shortly after hearing the gun shot, West said.

Detectives continue to investigate. No arrests have been made.
