UPDATE: 10:39 p.m. | King County sheriff’s deputies are trying to put together details of a shooting that occurred in Maple Valley late Tuesday night, according to Detective Jason Stanley, a spokesman for the department.

Deputies responded to a shots-fired call at a house in the 23600 block of Witte Road, but then were called to a nearby 7-Eleven store, where a man in his 30s had been shot in the face. Medics took the man to Harborview Medical Center, and his condition is unknown, Stanley said.

Detectives believe he was brought from the house — where an undetermined number of others were found with assault injuries — and dropped off at the convenience store, Stanley told The Seattle Times.

Deputies found guns thrown from a vehicle between the house and the store.

A woman who drove herself to Valley Medical Center with a gunshot wound said the injury had occurred in Maple Valley, and deputies believe the incidents are related, Stanley said.

Deputies are trying to determine who is a victim and who is a suspect as well as the nature of the disturbance.
