Man shot during confrontation at Burien park

A man was wounded in a shooting early this morning at a Burien park, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Spokeswoman Katie Larson said deputies responded to a call of gunshots in the 15600 block of 4th Avenue South in Burien at 4:20 a.m after residents of the Courthouse Apartments found an injured man in a stairwell.

Larson said the victim, in his 20s to 30s, told deputies that he had just used a restroom at William E. Moshier Memorial Park when he walked out and was confronted by a bald, shirtless man, Larson said. The victim turned to run and was shot in the leg or buttocks, said Larson.

The victim, a 31-year-old Burien resident, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment of a non-life-threatening wound.

A suspect has not been arrested, Larson said.
