RENTON, Wash. - One person was shot during an attempted robbery at a Renton restaurant Thursday night, according to police.

Officers were called to the scene just after 10:00 p.m. outside the Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse location on Rainier Ave. S. near Southwest 7th St.

They said one person was shot and taken to a nearby hospital. No word on the victim's condition.

Investigators said the suspect then took off in a vehicle. Police have not released any other details or a vehicle description.

The shooting comes less than a month after a separate shooting outside the same restaurant.

A woman was shot in the leg outside Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse in March. A police K9 unit helped track down the suspect in that case.
