BPD: victim sustained what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries

On Tuesday night, 911 dispatchers received several reports of gunshots and subjects running away from the scene in the 1200 block of Park Avenue in Bremerton.

Officers from the Bremerton Police Department responded to investigate the scene with assistance from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and the Washington State Patrol. According to a BPD press release, evidence of a shooting was found during a search of the area. One officer spotted a vehicle believed to be associated with the incident leaving the area.

Officers stopped that vehicle and discovered a victim with multiple gunshot wounds inside, the release states. He was being transported to the hospital by friends and was identified as a 20-year-old Port Orchard man.

Medics from the Bremerton Fire Department responded and transported the victim to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton for what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries, BPD Sergeant Jeff Schaefer wrote in the release. A Bremerton Police dog track by K-9 Loki was unable to locate the suspect or suspects.

“In-depth investigation by the Bremerton Police Department General Investigations Unit is ongoing,” the release states. “Preliminary findings show that the shooting was not random and there is not believed to be any danger to the public.”
