A man was shot in the leg at about 2 a.m. April 23 after asking a group of people making noise in the parking lot to be quiet, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The man initially called to the group from his balcony at Castle Creek Apartments, 7000 132nd Place S.E., City Manager Rob Wyman wrote in an email to the City Council. An argument and a fight followed, leading to one member of the group to pull out a gun and fire several shots, hitting the resident once.

The resident — who is in his 40s — suffered only minor injuries and was transported to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue.

Two Newcastle Police officers were on duty at the time, and one heard the shots. One officer responded to the apartment complex, and the other followed a group of cars speeding away from the scene, Wyman wrote. The officer stopped the vehicles and — with the help of witnesses — arrested the alleged shooter, a Seattle man in his late 20s.

The alleged shooter did not allow the officer to search his car, so the officer impounded the vehicle, Wyman wrote. After obtaining a search warrant, police searched the car and found the gun allegedly used, which Police Chief Melinda Irvine said was a .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol.
