Teen Shot Tuesday In Brighton Neighbohood

Detectives are searching for three suspects after an 18-year-old man was wounded in a shooting Tuesday in the Brighton neighborhood.

Witnesses called 911 at 6:15 PM to report gunfire in the 7000 block on 42 Ave. S.  Officers arrived within two minutes of the call and found the victim, who had been shot in the stomach. Medics transported him to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.

Witnesses reported that just before the shooting, the victim had walked up to a driveway, met with three men, and handed them cash. One of the men then opened fire on the victim, before all three suspects fled to a green or purple sedan.

Gang Unit Detectives are investigating the case and are asking anyone with information to call (206) 233-5000.
