RENTON, Wash. — Officers with the Renton Police Department are investigating a shooting that occurred Monday outside an Applebee’s restaurant.
The Applebee's is located in the 300 block of South Grady Way – about 1.2 miles southwest of Liberty Park.
Police were called about 4 p.m. after receiving multiple 911 calls about a shooting in a retail parking lot on S. Grady Way.
When officers arrived, they found a 20-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds lying on the pavement next to his car, investigators said.
