Officers were dispatched at about 5 a.m. to a report of armed suspects assaulting the occupants of a West Hill residence, according to a Kent Police Facebook post. The home is just east of Interstate 5 and west of Military Road South.
While police were responding, dispatch updated the information to reports of shots fired and suspects fleeing the scene. Police are still looking for the suspect or suspects.
Officers arrived on location to find one man shot and deceased. There were two other adults, still on location that had injuries from being physically assaulted. Both victims were treated by Puget Sound Fire. Paramedics transported one of them to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for further evaluation, according to police.
Preliminary information suggests that the suspect is known to the victims and it is believed that this incident is specific to those involved, according to police. Detectives are at the scene and are interviewing witnesses and examining evidence to determine the sequence of events that resulted in the shooting.
