Evidence collected at scene of Renton shooting outside venue

No arrests were made in the shooting that killed a 32-year-old Tacoma man and injured six others on Saturday.

RENTON, Wash. — Four handguns, several magazines and about 100 cartridge cases were recovered outside a rental location after a shootout in downtown Renton over the weekend.

No arrests were made in the shooting that killed a 32-year-old Tacoma man and injured six others on Saturday.

Renton police said they received multiple 911 calls around 1 a.m. Saturday where gunshots were fired near Logan Avenue South and Second Street outside a musicians’ hall where an event was being held.

“Incoming units actually heard gunfire as they arrived,” said Renton Police Detective Robert Onishi. “The suspects were all gone, there were a number of gunshot victims here. Some were treated on site; some were taken to nearby hospitals themselves.”

While first responders attempted to treat the injured Tacoma man, “officers and firefighters also had to deal with a large, excited crowd,” according to the Renton Police Department. The man was taken to a safer place but later died.

Renton Police called on other authorities for assistance. Officers from Tukwila, Kent, Auburn, Des Moines, Federal Way, the King County Sheriff’s Office and the Washington State Patrol helped secure the crime scene.

The other six injured are expected to recover, but some remain hospitalized.

Onishi said they believe the shooting related to an argument.

Renton Police is asking anyone with information about the case to contact Scott Barfield at 425-430-7534 and reference case #22-7518.

The Renton shooting comes less than a month after eight people were shot dead outside a private venue in South Tacoma.
