One man is dead and another is in critical condition following a shootout this morning in Boulevard Park. The shooting happened just before 1:30 a.m. in the 1000 block of South 102nd Street, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies arrived and found a car running in the front yard of a house. The driver and passenger in the vehicle, both men, had apparent gunshot wounds, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene with a gunshot wound to the head and the driver is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center. The Sheriff’s Office said a  weapon was found in the victim’s car.

At least two houses and a second vehicle in the neighborhood were hit by gunfire, according to detectives.

Some neighbors reported seeing one or two vehicles leaving the scene around the time of the shooting, but detectives have not been able to confirm those reports. The Sheriff’s Office has no description of vehicles possibly involved in the shooting or of any suspects.

Detectives said the driver knew someone who lived at the house the car was in front of, but did not know what relationship there was between them. As of Wednesday afternoon, it was unknown whether the shooting was gang-related.
