Kirkland police officers responded to the Arete Apartments on a report of possible gunshots heard at 9 a.m. on Jan. 6.

When officers arrived at the apartment complex, located at 450 Central Way, they found an adult male with a gunshot wound. The male was conscious, and was transported to Harborview with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The incident appears to have involved individuals known to the victim, and was not a random act, according to Kirkland police. The involved suspects fled prior to police arrival.

As of Sunday, Kirkland detectives were processing the scene and the investigation was ongoing.
