A Renton man in his early 20s was shot and killed early this morning in Skyway.
Shortly after 1:35 a.m. King County Deputies responded to a report of gunfire in the 5600 block of South Langston Road.
When deputies arrived they discovered the Renton man sitting in the car with a gunshot wound and began first aid on the victim until medics arrived, according to a statement from Sgt. Katie Larson of the King County Sheriff’s Office.
According to witness reports, the shooting victim was celebrating his birthday at the home of a friend who lived nearby and apparently went outside to charge his cell phone in a friend’s car.
King County Major Crimes is continuing to investigate the crime.
