Man in serious condition after Burien shooting

The King County Sheriff’s Office says an 18-year-old man is in serious condition after being found shot in Burien this afternoon.

He was taken from the 15600 block of Fourth Avenue South to Harborview Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his abdomen, said Sgt. Cindi West.

At this point, no witnesses or anyone who heard gunshots have come forward, West said. Because the victim was found next to a vehicle, she said detectives think there’s a possibility he was shot in another area. Detectives have not been able to ask the victim about the shooting because of his condition at Harborview.

“Right now we have more questions than answers,” West said.
