A man in his 20s was fatally shot about 2 a.m. Sunday at a Redmond apartment complex.
Fire crews responded to a fire alarm at a large apartment recreation room, at 16800 N.E. 39th Court, where a party was being held, attended by about 100 people.
There was no fire, and it seemed people smoking indoors had set off the alarm.
Shortly after, firefighters heard what sounded like a gunshot and called for medical assistance and police backup.
