Altercation leads to early morning shooting in Auburn

An early morning shooting in Auburn seriously injured one young man and resulted in the arrest of two others.

Auburn police say that after a physical altercation at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday at 15th Street Southeast and B Street Southeast, a suspect shot the victim, a man in his late teens or early 20s, in the torso. The victim is now in serious but stable condition at Harborview Medical Center, said Cmdr. Mike Hirman.

Police apprehended and arrested the suspect, a man in his early 20s, and the driver of his getaway vehicle.

Detectives are interviewing witnesses to the crime, Hirman said. At this point, he said there is no indication the shooting was gang-related.

This is the second shooting in Auburn this month that seriously injured someone. On May 9, a 36-year-old woman was shot in the neck and paralyzed from the neck down in a drug deal gone wrong, according to the Auburn Reporter.
