Renton police arrest boyfriend of shooting victim

UPDATE: 7:15 a.m. Wednesday | Renton police have arrested the boyfriend of a 21-year-old woman who was shot in the leg Tuesday in the Renton Highlands neighborhood. The man, 18, was booked into jail for investigation of first-degree assault.

Details of the victim’s medical condition have not been released by police.

UPDATE: 6:38 p.m. | Renton police are speaking with the boyfriend of the 21-year-old woman who was shot in the 2200 block of Northeast 10th Street, calling him a “person of interest” in the case.

The 18-year-old Renton man is the main focus of the investigation, Renton police spokeswoman Terri Vickers said, since there had been a history of domestic-violence incidents at the residence where the shooting happened.

The victim remains at Harborview Medical Center, Vickers said.
