RENTON, Wash. —

A woman who was wounded in a shootout Wednesday night at a Renton park has died.

Police spokesman Robert Onishi told KOMO ( the 20-year-old woman was hit in the abdomen and could not be saved despite surgery at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where she died Thursday morning.

Witnesses told police that a fight broke out between two women from two groups at Liberty Park. Then a man from each group pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots.

The woman who died was not one of the women fighting.

Police questioned and released one man but investigators are still trying to identify the shooters.
