Assault charges filed in shooting at Muckleshoot Casino

The man suspected of shooting two men outside the Muckleshoot Casino late Saturday night has been charged with two counts of first-degree assault, both with firearms enhancements.

Antonio F. Castro, 63, of Renton, remains in the King County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail. His arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 2 at the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent.

According to Auburn police, the shooting stemmed from a confrontation between Castro and two men in the parking lot of the Auburn casino. Police say Castro and his wife were driving through the parking lot when they were confronted by the two men who were walking near their car.

According to police, the two men taunted Castro, who responded by showing them he was armed with a 9 mm handgun. The taunting reportedly continued and at one point, Castro allegedly stopped his car, got out and opened fire.

The men ran off and Castro chased them, according to police. Police said he found one man hiding in a bush and shot him in the throat and upper back. He then shot the second man in the chest, according to police.

Both men survived.
