Young man shot in the leg on Delridge Way in West Seattle; Police searching for suspects

Information from Det. Jeff Kappel with the Seattle Police Department

A young man was shot in the leg in West Seattle tonight and officers continue to search for the suspects. It all started at approximately 8:19 p.m. in the 9200 block of Delridge Way SW. A 17-year-old male was sitting at the bus stop when he was approached by two unknown male suspects. At least one of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the leg. Both suspects then fled the scene on foot and remain at large.

The victim has been less than cooperative with investigating officers and thus there are no suspect descriptions available at this time.

Fire department medics were called to the scene and transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of his non-life-threatening injuries.

The circumstances leading up to the shooting remain under active investigation.
