Tukwila police are investigating a shooting in Tukwila that left one man seriously injured, according to a news release.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after police found him with an apparent gunshot wound in the backyard of a house near South 140th Street and Military Road South, the department said. The victim was in serious but stable condition late Wednesday.

The shooting took place about 9 p.m., according to police, who believe the victim initially fled after being shot and then collapsed at the home a block away. Police do not believe the shooting was a “random act,” according to the news release.

No arrests have been made. The Tukwila Police Department Major Crimes unit is investigating.

The victim is one of four people injured in shootings in King County on Wednesday. Three men were wounded in a drive-by shooting in North Seattle and taken to Harborview for treatment, one with life-threatening injuries.
