At 11:40pm on Saturday, June 11 at Echo Lake Park/ Interurban Trail, a 16 year old male was shot in the neck.
The victim was with a female when three subjects approached them and ordered the two victims to the ground. When suspects attempted to take the male's cell phone, he tried to resist and to hang onto his phone. That's when the suspect shot him in the neck.
The 16 year old male was taken to Harborview Hospital with what appears to be a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
The King County Sheriff's Major Crime unit is investigating this case.
Echo Lake Park is located at the head of Echo Lake at N 200th and Ashworth.
