Auburn police arrest suspect in shooting of teen

Auburn police arrested a suspect Thursday evening in a shooting that sent an 18-year-old to Harborview Medical Center on Nov. 2.

The male suspect was booked into the Pierce County Jail on suspicion of first-degree assault. The News Tribune generally does not name suspects before arraignment.

Early Nov. 2, police responded to a single-car crash at 69th Street East and Lakeland Hills Way and found the teen with a gunshot wound, spokesman Steve Stocker said.

He apparently had been involved in a fight in the parking lot of a nearby shopping center, Stocker said.
