A small group of people was approached in the parking lot of the Benson Plaza shopping center in the 23000 block of 104th Ave SE. Kent Police said the suspect attempted to steal from the group.

The suspect allegedly fired at least one shot, injuring a man. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center and in satisfactory condition.

People from the bar rushed out and pinned down the suspect until police arrived to take him into custody.
