Police: 5 dead in shooting in Federal Way


FEDERAL WAY, WA (WKOW) – Police say five people are dead after an apartment complex shooting just south of Seattle, Washington.

Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock says officers responded to shots being fired around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night.

Upon arrival, police saw two men injured on the ground in a parking lot.  One of the guys reached for a gun as officers moved in to assist them.  Schrock says officers opened fire.  The man was killed but it was not immediately clear if it was from the police gunfire or from another wound.

The other man on the ground and another man in the parking lot were found dead.

After police searched the apartment complex, police found another man dead in one apartment and a slain woman in another.

Authorities say there was no immediate word as to what set off the gunfire.
