M.E. identifies victims in Auburn tavern slaying

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office on Tuesday released the names of the three men who were shot and killed outside the Sports Page tavern in Auburn early Sunday.

Antaun Greer, 21, and Lorenzo Duncan, 23, both died from multiple gunshot wounds; the third victim, Nicholas Lindsay, 26, died from a gunshot wound to the torso, according to death investigators. All three deaths were ruled homicides.

Duncan’s parents had previously identified him as one of the dead.

The three men were killed in a parking-lot shootout around 1:30 a.m. Sunday outside a popular sports bar at 2802 Auburn Way N. A fourth man was injured and is being treated at Harborview Medical Center.

It appears the dispute started when a woman became angry that another woman was dancing with her boyfriend or husband, said Auburn police Cmdr. Mike Hirman.

The dispute then escalated outside the bar and involved two groups of men – one group was at the bar for a birthday party while the other “was a less formal group that joined up there,” Hirman said.

At least 100 people were in the parking lot when the shooting occurred. Federal Way police arrested a 28-year-old man after stopping his bullet-riddled car, which had been seen leaving the scene. The man was ordered held on $250,000 bail Monday, accused of reckless endangerment for retrieving a gun and firing five rounds into the crowd, according to court records. The 28-year-old, who is a felon, is also being held on investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm.
