Seven people were wounded, at least two critically, when a gunman opened fire at a casino near Seattle, authorities said.
Auburn Police Commander Jamie Sidell said the shooting happened at a nightclub inside the Muckleshoot Casino at about 1.30 a.m. PDT (2 p.m. IST) on Sunday.
An armed, 42-year-old man entered the club looking for a woman who was possibly his wife or girlfriend, Mr. Sidell said. He discovered her with another man and shot them both.
The man then fired multiple rounds, hitting five more people, Mr. Sidell said.
He started to flee the club, but a security officer tackled him. The man was detained and has been arrested, Mr. Sidell said.
Harborview Medical Centre spokeswoman Susan Gregg said four of the victims — three women and a man — were brought to her Seattle facility, about 50 km north of Auburn. She said two were in critical condition and two were serious.
The other three shooting victims were transported to Valley Medical Centre in Renton, which declined to release information on their conditions on Sunday.
