Boyfriend arrested in shooting of woman, 21 | UPDATE: He's released
UPDATE: A Superior Court judge Wednesday afternoon released the suspect in the shooting Tuesday on his own recognizance after finding probable cause for third-degree assault and false reporting. His next hearing is Friday, Sept. 20. The Renton Reporter is not naming him because he has yet to be charged.
Here's the original story:
An 18-year-old man was arrested Tuesday night for investigation of first-degree assault in the shooting of his girlfriend in Renton earlier in the evening, according to the Renton Police Department.
The man is to have a preliminary court appearance at 2:45 p.m. today (Wednesday) in courtroom GB of the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. His name wasn't released.
The shooting occurred at about 5 p.m. at an apartment in the 2200 block of Northeast 10th Place and was reported to police by the boyfriend.
The 21-year-old victim was taken by medics to Harborview Medical Center, where she underwent surgery for gunshot wounds to her legs. Her injuries were not life-threatening, according to Renton Police Detective Robert Onishi.
It's believed the two live at the apartment, he said. Several weapons were recovered, including rifles, handguns and a revolver, but it wasn't immediately known what type of gun was used in the shooting, Onishi said.
Police also don't yet have a motive for the shooting, he said.
Officers interviewed witnesses at the scene and the boyfriend at the police station for about an hour, but a K9 track didn't find anyone who matched the shooting suspect's description given by the boyfriend, according to police.
Anyone with information related to the shooting is asked to called the Renton Police Department at 425-430-7500 and refer to case 13-10048.
