Two wounded in shooting at Southcenter mall


TUKWILA — Two people were wounded in a shooting Wednesday night at Southcenter mall.

Tukwila police said the male and female were transported to Harborview Medical Center with critical injuries. The shooter immediately fled, police wrote in a tweet.

“The incident is believed to be an isolated incident and occurred in a parking lot,” police wrote in the tweet.

The shooting occurred just outside the JC Penney store around 6:30 p.m., according to media reports.

An employee at J.C. Penney, reached by phone, declined to comment.

Tasha Hunter, another employee at a mall store she said she was not authorized to name, said police had the entrance blocked off, but did not indicate why.

The mall was the scene of a shooting on May 1, when two men were wounded, prompting police to evacuate the shopping center and order people still in stores to shelter in place.
