Man shot at Renton gas station this morning

A man was shot at a Renton service station this morning and police are looking for the gunman.

Officers were called to the gas station in the 300 block of Rainier Avenue South just before 4 a.m. on a report of gunfire. When they arrived, they found the shooting victim, 29, on the ground. The man is believed to have been inside a black BMW parked at the gas station when he was shot and wounded in the chest and leg, according Renton police spokeswoman Terri Vickers.

The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center. His condition wasn’t immediately available.

Police are searching for a gunman, but “we don’t have much for a suspect description,” Vickers said.
