Two people were seriously hurt and a man was arrested after a shooting near the entrance to the Muckleshoot Casino tonight.
Auburn Police Cmdr. Jamie Sidell said the two shooting victims were taken to Harborview Medical Center with “significant injuries.” He said police quickly arrested the gunman.
Sidell said details are scarce. He said the shooting happened shortly after 9 p.m.

WENATCHEE — A man suspected of torturing and killing a dog, after goading a 15-year-old boy to assist him, was formally charged with the crime this week.
Jamar W. Stipek, 20, faces a charge of first-degree animal cruelty after police said he and the teen tortured and killed the dog.
The teen’s mother, Sarah L. Keffeler, 37, is charged with three counts of first-degree assault for allegedly firing a .22-caliber rifle toward Stipek and her son after she learned they had killed her dog.
Wenatchee police said they were called to Keffeler’s home in the 700 block of Orondo Avenue about 1:45 a.m. Oct. 17, after Stipek called 911 from an upstairs closet where he was hiding. The 15-year-old jumped out of a second-story window to escape the gunfire. There were five people in the house at the time, including two children.
Stipek and the teenager admitted killing the animal the previous evening because it was a nuisance, according to police. Stipek said he taunted the teen to convince him to carry out the killing. The 15-year-old faces arraignment Nov. 5 on an identical charge to Stipek’s.
Stipek is scheduled for trial Dec. 17, with a possible sentence of one to three months in jail if convicted. He has no prior felony record. Keffeler’s arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 13; she could face seven to 10 years in prison on each count.

A drunken couple setting off fireworks early this morning prompted nearly four-dozen 911 calls from Queen Anne residents who thought they were hearing gunshots, police said.
Seattle Police Department spokesman Mark Jamieson said that officers were dispatched to the 400 block of West Republican Street around 3:30 a.m. for reports of gunfire. Some callers said they saw a man shooting a gun, others reported hearing a woman crying and people running.
Officers were led to an apartment in the 500 block of West Mercer Street, where they confronted a 33-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman. Both appeared to be drunk and officers could smell marijuana inside the home, Jamieson said.
The woman told police that they had been outside, shooting each other with Roman candle-style fireworks. She said she had been laughing, not crying.
Police found remnants of fireworks in the street, Jamieson said.
Neither was arrested. Police are requesting that the Seattle City Attorney’s Office charge them with reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor.

Police say a bystander shot his pistol to scare off a man threatening to kill a woman with a knife in Everett this afternoon.
The bystander told Everett police he’d ordered a 48-year-old man chasing and threatening to kill the woman with a knife to stop his attack near the intersection of 34th Street and Lombard Avenue.
Concerned that the woman might be killed if the man didn’t stop chasing her, the 61-year-old Arlington man fired one shot into the air around 4:30 p.m.
The man with the knife then stopped chasing the woman and was held by several people nearby until officers arrived to take him into custody. He was booked into Snohomish County Jail for unlawful possession of a dangerous weapon.
The woman fled the scene and has not been identified, according to Everett police. Detectives are still investigating who she is and where she may have gone.
Police interviewed the bystander after the incident, and no charges are expected to filed against him, according to a release from the Everett Police Department.
