A 29-year-old Seattle man was arrested in the shooting of another man in the back with a rifle Wednesday at an apartment complex on Kent's West Hill. The two reportedly had argued over a debt.
Kent Police Department spokesman Paul Peterson said the victim, 24, of Seattle, was visiting friends at the Bravado on 27th apartments in 25600 block of 27th Place South when he was shot around 1 p.m.
Police said he was taken to Harborview Medical Center and was in critical condition.
The argument over money the victim reportedly owed began earlier in the day, police said. The suspect then left the premises, returned, continued the argument and allegedly shot the victim.
The 29-year-old was arrested at a Renton home early Friday and was jailed at the City of Kent Correctional Facility.
He will be transferred to King County and the prosecutor's office will review the case for charging, police said.
