SEATTLE -- Federal Way authorities are investigating the third deadly shooting in as many days.

Investigators do not believe there is a connection between the three shootings.

Police say the first victim was a 26-year-old Seattle man who was shot on the porch of an apartment. The second shooting involved a 27-year-old Tacoma man who was found dead in a parked vehicle.

OFficers found the body of the third victim late Tuesday in the 1800 block of SW 356th St.  Investigators say the 30-year-old man from Federal Way had been shot several times.

Police are working with city leaders on ways to combat gun violence. They plan to hold a news conference at 11 a.m. Wednesday to update the community on all three homicide investigations.

Officials also plan to present ideas at a city council meeting next week.
