Seattle Police are investigating the January 3rd death of a young Juneau woman, apparently the victim of a parking lot shooting in the Rainier Beach area.
Twenty-two-year old Ashton Reyes was one of two people shot in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant in the 9300 block of Rainier Avenue South. Officers responded to calls of “shots fired” about 10 p.m. on January 3rd, and said people were running from the restaurant’s parking lot when they arrived.
Police found the wounded Reyes lying in the parking lot. She was rushed to Harborview Medical Center, where she died about 75 minutes later. According to the King County Medical Examiner, Reyes died from a gunshot wound to the torso.
Police said they found an adult male victim in another parking lot across the street; his injuries were not life-threatening.
Police are investigating the incident as a homicide. Reyes had recently completed a dental assistant program in Seattle and was working as an intern in a dentist’s office.
She graduated from Yaakoosge’ Daakahidi Alternative High School in 2008 and was the daughter of Rick Reyes of Juneau and Terri Reyes of Oregon.
