Editor’s note: This item has been updated with new information from police:

A 23-year-old woman was wounded early this morning after two men opened fire at each other near Pike Place Market, according to Seattle police.

The men were walking near Second Avenue and Pike Street around 12:15 a.m. when they began arguing . One of the men pulled out a handgun and opened fire at the second man, who is believed to have fired back, police said.

The victim was with friends at the northeast corner of First and Pike when she was struck on the forearm by gunfire, according to police. She was taken to Harborview Medical Center with what was described as a non-life-threatening wound. Police say she is expected to be OK.

Witnesses provided officers with descriptions of the gunmen. One man was stopped at a parking lot north of the shooting scene and taken into custody. Police also recovered a handgun from him.

A second suspect was found by officers in a parking garage near Second and Pike, police said. A detective found a handgun in an alley between Second and Third avenues, police said.

The suspects, 18 and 21, were booked into the King County Jail for investigation of assault as well as firearms and drug charges, police said.
