Updated at 6:30 p.m. with additional details.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting of a 17-year-old male Monday night that occurred during a robbery attempt in the 3300 block of 204th Street Southwest in Lynnwood.

According to the sheriff’s office, the victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

During the investigation, detectives learned the victim had walked to the parking lot of Hazelwood Elementary School, where he was confronted by multiple males who attempted to rob him around 7 p.m. Monday. The suspects then fled the scene.

According to Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Courtney O’Keefe, the victim was going to the parking lot to meet up with someone. “It was not a completely random attack,” she said. “However, exact details are still under investigation.”

A K9 team responded to the area, but was unable to locate the suspects, the sheriff’s office said. Multiple shell casings were recovered in the parking lot.
