Police in the northwest Washington community of Sedro-Woolley say a shooting that killed one man and seriously wounded another at an apartment complex is likely gang-related.

Lt. William Tucker said police found a man in his mid-30s dead Monday evening at the Cascade View apartment complex. A man in his late 20s was taken to Skagit Valley Hospital. KOMO-TV reported that second man was in critical condition.

Police were questioning two apartment complex residents and looking for a third person of interest.

Tucker says he believes the shooting was gang-related and may be retaliation for a recent shooting outside of Sedro-Woolley.
