Two teens arrested in Federal Way shooting


Federal Way police have arrested two teens in connection with a shooting that left two other teens injured Thursday.

The shooting happened just past 2:30 p.m. Thursday near Alderdale Park in the 2700 block of SW 340th Place, police said.

Officers found the two victims, ages 17 and 19, inside a parked Dodge Magnum. The older teen, a Kent resident, was taken to Harborview Medical Center with what police described as life-threatening injuries. He was last listed in critical condition. The second teen, of Federal Way, was also taken to the hospital. He is expected to survive his injuries.

Police believe the two victims were involved in some sort of drug transaction with the two teens accused in the shooting.

The teens arrested in the matter, ages 15 and 17, have since been booked into the King County Juvenile Detention Center for investigation of first-degree assault.
