A 45-year-old man was fatally shot Wednesday morning, Jan. 25 in a neighborhood about half a mile north of Mirror Lake.
A 22-year-old man, the suspected shooter, has been detained, according to the Federal Way Police Department.
Around 7:30 a.m. in the 200 block of SW 305th Street, law enforcement officials responded to reports of a shooting.
The department has released few details so far. Information on what led up to the shooting, and what the suspected shooter’s motives were, are “unknown at this time,” said Cmdr. Kurt Schwan in an email early Wednesday afternoon.
Police say there is no threat to the community stemming from the incident.
The shooting is the first known homicide of 2023 for Federal Way, Schwan confirmed.
