Melee at Seattle motorcycle club leaves five hurt, one arrested

One person was shot and four others were injured in an early morning melee and shooting at a Seattle motorcycle club, according to  police.

Police spokeswoman Det. Renee Witt said shortly after 5 a.m., a fight started in front of the Magic Wheels Motorcycle Club on Airport Way South and South Doris Street.

During the fight, a woman was punched in the face and knocked onto the concrete by a man. At that point, Witt said, the victim’s husband confronted his wife’s assailant, pulled out a handgun, and pointed it at the man and fired several shots. At the same time, another unknown suspect brandished a handgun in front of the victims, Witt said.

The melee continued with several assaults, Witt said.

A man who had been shot left the area in a car, running over a woman. He was later found at a gas station in the 6200 block of Corson Avenue South.

Witt said five victims were treated at Harborview Medical Center in connection with the incident, none with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries.

A suspected shooter, 30 years old, was identified by the shooting victim and booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault. Witt said the information on the case is preliminary, and detectives are still investigating the incident.
