Arrest follows bloody brawl, gunfire at West Seattle bar

A verbal argument at the Bamboo Tavern at 2806 Alki Avenue Southwest early Sunday morning led to a bloody fist fight and at least one shot that was fired, according to Seattle police.
 
Both the victims and the suspects were “very intoxicated” when they got into some sort of argument around 1 a.m., according to Seattle police spokeswoman Renee Witt.
 
The altercation became a bloody fight before a gun was pulled.  At least one shot was fired and one person suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. A second victim had a concussion and other injuries, according to Witt. Conditions for the victims was not available on Sunday.
 
The two suspects fled, but one was found, arrested and booked  into King County Jail on investigation of assault. The second suspect remains at large, police said.
