On Monday, Feb. 5, 2024, Kent Police responded to a home invasion on the East Hill where shots had been fired, injuring a 58-year-old woman.

Police said that at 2:28 p.m., Kent Patrol Officers were dispatched to a residence in the 24200 block of 94th Ave S. (map below) in reference to suspects attempting to kick in the door.

The victim sustained a gunshot wound to the arm, received medical attention at the scene, and then was transported to a local hospital. It was later discovered that some of the bullets also hit the home.

Here’s more from Kent PD:

  • The 911 caller stated that three suspects were armed with guns, and that one suspect was possibly known to them.
  • Just prior to the Officers’ arrival dispatch advised that shots had been fired inside the residence and the victim, a 58-year-old Kent woman, had been shot. The 911 caller stated that the suspects fled in a silver Jetta.
  • Multiple Kent Police Officers flooded to the area, and an incoming Patrol Officer spotted the Jetta attempting to leave the neighborhood.
  • Kent Officers conducted a high-risk vehicle stop and detained all 3 suspects without further incident.
  • One suspect, a 19-year-old Federal Way man, was arrested after being identified as a shooter. Video evidence of the incident showed that at least 6 shots were fired.
  • The other 2 suspects, a 20-year-old Federal Way man and a 19-year-old Seattle man, were detained and interviewed by Kent Police Detectives. One of those suspects was arrested on a warrant.

The Kent Police Detectives Unit is conducting an investigation to determine what led up to this shooting and what additional charges are appropriate.
