SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- A 14-year-old was arrested in connection with a fatal shooting Wednesday in Renton, U.S. state of Washington, local police said on Friday.

Officers were called to the crime scene around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday and found a man lying on a sidewalk. The 54-year-old victim had suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the police.

The investigators identified quickly that the alleged shooter was a passenger in a black SUV that had fled the scene.

The suspect vehicle was located at a nearby apartment complex Wednesday. Valley SWAT Team served a search warrant Thursday evening at a unit in the complex. The alleged shooter, a 14-year-old Burien resident, was arrested at the apartment, a little more than 25 hours after the shooting, Renton police said, adding that the teen has been booked into King County Juvenile Detention, and will face charges for both this shooting and another murder that occurred in Renton in 2021.
