ASSOCIATED PRESS

SKYWAY, Wash. — The King County sheriff’s office says five people were injured in a shooting outside a bar in the suburbs south of Seattle early Sunday morning.

King County detectives say one person suffered life-threatening injuries and has been taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

The shooting in Skyway happened around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

KIRO-TV reports that two others have been treated for injuries in nearby hospitals, including one person with only minor wounds.

Deputies say the shooting may be gang related because no one they’ve talked to has been cooperative.

Other shootings have happened in this area in 2010 and 2008.

Further details about the shooting and the conditions of those injured were not immediately available.
