Two people suffered gunshot wounds to the arm, but are expected to survive, police said. No arrests have been made.
Two people were wounded Wednesday night in a shooting in a Capitol Hill nightclub, Seattle police said.
Two groups of people opened fire on each other after a fight broke out around 9:45 p.m. at Chop Suey, 1325 E. Madison St., police said. People attending a show fled after the gunshots were fired, according to police.
After police arrived at the club, one victim showed up at an urgent-care clinic with a gunshot wound to the arm, police said. About two hours later, a second victim, also with a wound to the arm, was taken to Highline Medical Center in Burien. Police say both victims are expected to recover.
No suspects were arrested. The Police Department’s Gang Unit is investigating the shooting. Chop Suey is closed Thursday for Thanksgiving.
