Bail was set Monday at $500,000 for a 63-year-old Renton man after a judge found probable cause to hold him on investigation of assault for the weekend shooting at the Muckleshoot Casino.
The man is alleged to have shot two men Saturday in the parking lot of the Auburn casino.
According to Auburn police, the Renton man was driving in the casino’s parking lot with his wife when he was “confronted by two males walking near his car” who used profane language and taunted him. Police said the two men continued to taunt the Renton man even after he showed them he was armed with a 9-mm handgun.
The Renton man continued to drive toward a parking-lot exit when he noticed the two taunters following him on foot, police said.
After the alleged gunman stopped his car, one of the two men walked up to the vehicle and started kicking it, police said.
The Renton man fired one round at the primary taunter, who ran away, police said. The armed man then got out of his car and chased both men, police said.
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.
The police report does not say whether the men knew each other, nor whether alcohol was involved in the incident.
