A 16-year-old boy was shot and killed at an apartment complex in Parkland Wednesday evening. The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department is investigating.

In a video posted to social media, Sergeant Darren Moss with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office said responders found the victim was 16 years old. Deputies treated the boy and performed CPR while waiting for the fire department to arrive.

The boy was transported to the hospital.

Deputies were told that the shooting happened after a group of men had an argument in the apartment parking lot. A car that was involved in the incident hit two parked vehicles before leaving the area.

The man driving the car involved in the incident showed up at another hospital with a gunshot wound. He is currently in stable condition, the sheriff’s department said.

Deputies later learned that the boy who was shot died from his injuries at the hospital.

No suspects are in custody at the time.

Man arrested with 10,000 fentanyl pills after pointing gun at federal agents

A Federal Way man who pointed a gun at federal agents as he was busted for selling fentanyl was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Fernando Lopez-Armenta was arrested in August 2021 during a string operation where he agreed to sell 10,000 fentanyl pills to a “confidential source.”

Once it had been confirmed that he was going to sell illegal drugs to an informant, agents moved in to arrest him. Lopez-Armenta then pointed a loaded pistol at agents as they moved in. He put his gun down upon being ordered by another agent.

U.S. District Judge Coughenour stated, “The Court commends the arresting officers. The fact that Lopez-Armenta pointed a loaded gun at the officers, and they did not fire, shows tremendous restraint. He is lucky to be alive today.”

Lopez-Armenta was found guilty of one count of possessing fentanyl with the intent to distribute and one count of carrying a firearm in the commission of that crime.
