Man shot during fight outside Bremerton-area Fred Meyer

A man was shot this afternoon during a fight in a grocery store parking lot in East Bremerton, according to police.

Bremerton police said two men got into an argument in the parking lot outside the Fred Meyer store near Northeast Riddell Road and Wheaton Way at about 2:30 p.m.. A 35-year-old Bremerton man was armed with a knife and the other had a gun, police said.

Witnesses said they heard several shots being fired from the area, which the  man with the knife ran away from after sustaining gunshot wounds to his neck and arm, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

The gunshot-wound victim was found behind a fuel station and taken to Tacoma General Hospital with what Sheriff’s Office said were non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspected gunman was arrested and booked into Kitsap County jail on investigation of first-degree assault, the Sheriff’s Office said. He’s being held on $500,000 bail.

Sheriff’s Office detectives are  reviewing surveillance camera footage and applying for search warrants for vehicles associated with both the suspect and victim to find out more about what motivated the fight. They ask that anyone with additional information about the shooting call them at 360-337-7101.
