Kent police were called just after 11 p.m. Saturday to a shooting outside the American Legion Hall, 25405 97th Place S.
A woman from Kent had been shot multiple times. She was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle; her injuries were not considered life-threatening, the Kent Police Department said.
