KENT, Wash. -- Prosecutors say a hair pick:p was the motive behind a shooting that left a 17-year-old wounded Friday night in the parking lot of a Kent McDonald's.

The shooting happened just before 7:30 p.m. in the 10100 block of 256th Street.

The 16-year-old suspected shooter was upset about a hair pick he had left in the victim's girlfriend's car, according to court documents. The girlfriend said she was being threatened about the hair pick by people she didn't know and the meeting was arranged by the suspected shooter to get the pick back.

But when they met, the victim said he didn't have the pick, at which point the 16-year-old pulled out a gun and shot him in the chest, prosecutors said.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Meanwhile, the shooter ran away on foot, but turned himself in to police Saturday morning. The suspect, identified as Diontae Moore-Lyons has since been charged as an adult with first degree assault. Prosecutors have asked that he be held on $250,000 bail.
