Police looking into shots-fired case in Carnation

Officers with the Duvall police department are looking into a mysterious situation involving gunshots fired late Monday, Sept. 2, on West Rutherford Street.

There appear to be no serious injuries resulting from an altercation that happened shortly before 11 p.m. According to Duvall Police Cmdr. Carey Hert, who spoke to the Record on Friday, an older Carnation man reported that he had been shot by a shotgun blast. Police found a small nick in his arm, while two teens, who were known to the man, possibly living with him, claimed that they had been struck by a car in an altercation. They were taken to the hospital, Hert said.

Besides Duvall officers, Redmond police and King County Sheriff's Deputies responded, bringing two police dogs, one from Redmond, another from Kirkland. However, officers found nothing—no shell casings or suspects. Police took a piece of clothing from the older victim as evidence, and sent it to the lab to test for any residues.

Anyone who witnessed the altercation or can share tips should call the Duvall Police Department's main line at (425) 788-1519 and leave a message for officers.
