    Seattle-area authorities search for suspect after teen found dead near Safeway parking lot


    Washington state police Saturday were investigating the death of a teenager found near the parking lot of a Safeway grocery in a Seattle suburb in the early morning hours.

    Renton Police Department officials said the body of the 17-year-old victim was discovered lying in a grassy area in Renton.

    Authorities told FOX 13 Seattle that the victim’s friend found his body around 4 a.m. The friend had reportedly used their cellphone to track the victim’s location.

    Officers received more than one call from people who said they heard gunshots in the area around the same time.
