5 wounded in U District shooting

Five people were wounded in a University District shooting early Saturday in a fight outside a bar, according to Seattle police. More than 20 rounds were exchanged.

Police spokesman Detective Patrick Michaud said witnesses described a group of people arguing in front of a bar in the 5200 block of University Way Northeast. Punches were thrown and one person who was punched in the face pulled out a handgun and began firing, witnesses said.

Officers believe another person used a second handgun to fire back, Michaud said.

After the shooting, which occurred just after 2:30 a.m., a suspect left the scene on foot, heading north, police said. A police canine unit tracked him to Ravenna Park, where the trail was lost.

Based on witness descriptions, police say they are looking for a black man, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a black beanie, eyeglasses, a gray peacoat and black pants.

Three people were taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, while a fourth was treated and released at the scene. A fifth victim was taken by a friend to Harborview. No information was available on that person’s condition.
