A man is in custody after being accused of shooting and killing a man inside a home in Kent’s East Hill neighborhood on Saturday night.
Just after 10 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to a home in the 14300 block of Southeast 282nd Street after neighbors reported hearing gunshots coming from the house.
Arriving officers found a 45-year-old man bleeding from gunshot wounds and immediately began lifesaving measures.
First responders transported the man to Harborview Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead early Sunday, according to police.
A woman who witnessed the shooting told police that she and her boyfriend were in a physical altercation at their home when her 20-year-old son shot her boyfriend multiple times. He left the home before police arrived.
“All three people involved in this incident lived at the residence,” Kent police stated in a news release. “It appears that the violence committed by the suspect in this incident is specific to the dynamics of this family.”
On Wednesday, Kent police announced that a 20-year-old man had turned himself in in connection with the shooting.
