Two were inside vehicle parked at Shari’s restaurant on Kent Kangley Road

A woman was fatally shot and a man wounded by gunfire as they sat in a vehicle Tuesday night parked near the Shari’s restaurant at the Marketplace at Lake Meridian shopping center in Kent.

Officers responded at about 10:47 p.m. to 129990 SE Kent Kangley Road after reports of a shooting, according to a Kent Police media release. The woman, 34, of Federal Way, was in the driver’s seat and died at the scene. Paramedics transported the man, 64, of Kent, who was in the front passenger seat, to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. As of Tuesday night, he was conscious, but in grave condition, according to police.
