EDMONDS — Police in Edmonds are looking into the possibility that a weekend shooting was related to gang activity.
The confrontation early Saturday sent a 17-year-old Shoreline boy to the hospital. His injuries are not life-threatening.
“They are looking into evidence that there may be some level of gang affiliation,” Edmonds police Sgt. Josh McClure said in a new release Monday. “Information at this point suggests that this may have been a pre-arranged meeting between the two groups over some type of earlier altercation.”
Just after midnight Saturday, Edmonds officers responded to a reported assault near 76th Avenue W and 212 Street SW, behind a Dairy Queen. They were told five or six people were fighting, and shots were fired.
Officers were looking for a white Honda that reportedly fled the scene, with three inside, all wearing dark clothing. All of the suspects are believed to be between 18 and 22 years old.
Anyone with information is asked to call 425-771-0212.
