INITIAL POST: Kent police today are investigating the death of an 18-year-old man who was shot outside a house party.
Officers are interviewing witnesses from the shooting, which occurred at 2:05 a.m. on 92nd Avenue South, said police Sgt. Pat Lowery.
The man and his friends were leaving a party when a group of men confronted them, Lowery said. The two groups got into a verbal confrontation, and at least one of the suspects produced a gun.
