Tukwila Police say a man was shot to death and a woman was injured while trying to stop a car prowler in a parking garage at the Southcenter mall on Friday night. 

Officers were called to reports of a shooting at the parking garage around 6:40 p.m. When they arrived, they found a man and woman shot at the scene. 

Police say they attempted life-saving measures on the man, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman had non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
