Police are investigating after a man was shot Tuesday morning in the parking lot of the Vancouver Clinic offices in east Vancouver’s Parkside neighborhood.
Vancouver police responded about 6:30 a.m. for a disturbance with weapons.
A 21-year-old man was shot in the stomach in the parking lot of the Vancouver Clinic administration office, 13898 N.E. 28th St. The man walked to a nearby convenience store to ask for help, according to Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment. Kapp said the man’s wounds appear to not be life-threatening.
No suspect was in custody, but police said a light-colored SUV may be connected to the shooting. No further information was available.
Neither the victim nor suspect are associated with Vancouver Clinic, according to spokeswoman Kelly Love. She said Vancouver Clinic is cooperating with the police investigation.
The Vancouver Clinic building, which houses administration and medical records, is just blocks north of McKenzie Stadium on the Evergreen High School campus where a shooting forced multiple schools into lockdown last month. An Evergreen student is facing charges in that incident, in which no one was injured.
