A 74-year-old SeaTac man died Thursday after he was shot in the head by a bullet that traveled through the wall of his house and struck him as he slept, according to the King County Sheriff’s Officer.
Police responded about midnight to several 911 calls about shots fired near South 128th Street and 26th Avenue South.
One caller said their home had been hit with several bullets. No one inside that house was wounded.
As deputies inspected shell casings found in the yard, they received a call from another neighbor that a man had been shot in the head.
“Police believe a stray round from the shots next door went through the wall of his house and struck him as he slept,” spokeswoman Cindi West said.
The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he died.
No one was arrested and detectives have not determined a motive for the shooting.
