PORT ORCHARD — A 23-year-old male from Lakewood was arrested and booked into Kitsap County Jail Tuesday morning following a shooting at the 2200 block of Sidney Avenue in Port Orchard, according to a report from the Kitsap Critical Incident Response Team (KCIRT).

The suspect allegedly shot another 23-year-old male from Lakewood at the apartment. The victim was given aid by one of two females who were at the scene at the time of the shooting, said Lt. Aaron Elton of the Bremerton Police Department, who is the spokesman for KCIRT. The injured man was transported to a Tacoma hospital and was taken into surgery shortly afterward.

Elton said four adults and a 6-year-old child were in the apartment when the victim was shot in the upper torso. The child was transferred to the care of a family member and was unharmed, the spokesman said.

The shooting suspect, a convicted felon, was arrested and booked into jail for first-degree assault and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. He is being held on $250,000 bail. One of the adult females in the apartment was arrested on a local warrant.

Elton said a warrant was obtained by KCIRT to search the apartment and was expected to take several hours to execute.

Port Orchard Police requested the assistance of KCIRT to investigate the incident. KCIRT investigators include specialists from the Port Orchard and Bremerton police departments and the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, he said.
