17-year-old expected to survive after shooting in Edmonds

The suspects being sought are described as teens: 1 white male and 3 light-skinned black males.

EDMONDS — A 17-year-old boy was taken to Harborview Medical Center after being shot in Edmonds early Saturday.

The injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, police said. The teen apparently was shot in the thigh and buttock.

Just after midnight, Edmonds officers responded to a reported assault near 76th Avenue W and 212 Street SW, behind a Dairy Queen, according to a news release. They were told five or six people were fighting, and that shots had been heard.

Officers were looking for a white Honda that reportedly fled the scene, with three or four people inside all wearing dark clothing.

“Early information was that there were three suspects, described in their teens, one white male and three light skinned black males,” according to Edmonds police.

Three other people were with the teen during the fight. The investigation is ongoing.
