The King County Medical Examiner’s Office on Tuesday released the names of the three men who were shot and killed outside the Sports Page tavern in Auburn early Sunday.
Antaun Greer, 21, and Lorenzo Duncan, 23, both died from multiple gunshot wounds; the third victim, Nicholas Lindsay, 26, died from a gunshot wound to the torso, according to death investigators. All three deaths were ruled homicides.
Duncan’s parents had previously identified him as one of the dead.
The three men were killed in a parking-lot shootout around 1:30 a.m. Sunday outside a popular sports bar at 2802 Auburn Way N. A fourth man was injured and is being treated at Harborview Medical Center.
It appears the dispute started when a woman became angry that another woman was dancing with her boyfriend or husband, said Auburn police Cmdr. Mike Hirman.
The dispute then escalated outside the bar and involved two groups of men – one group was at the bar for a birthday party while the other “was a less formal group that joined up there,” Hirman said.
At least 100 people were in the parking lot when the shooting occurred. Federal Way police arrested a 28-year-old man after stopping his bullet-riddled car, which had been seen leaving the scene. The man was ordered held on $250,000 bail Monday, accused of reckless endangerment for retrieving a gun and firing five rounds into the crowd, according to court records. The 28-year-old, who is a felon, is also being held on investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm.

Gunfire erupted in the parking lot of a popular Auburn sports bar early Sunday, leaving three dead, one injured and police looking for suspects and answers.
Auburn Police Cmdr. Mike Hirman said detectives have recovered at least two guns, are questioning a “person of interest” and are processing a “very large crime scene” at The Sports Page, 2802 Auburn Way North.
The incident began about 1:45 a.m. when a large group of people — as many as 50, he said — were ”milling about” in the parking lot of the bar, located in a strip mall across Auburn Way North from the municipal airport.
“Some sort of dispute erupted. You know, over a girl or words or something, and somebody started shooting and then somebody else started shooting,” Hirman said. There were at least two guns involved and Hirman said there may have been other shooters, as well. “We really are just trying to sort it out. We have a very large crime scene and there were a lot of witnesses. One thing we know we have is guns and drinking.” As many as a dozen people may have been involved in the fight, he said.
The parking lot was mayhem when the shooting stopped, Hirman said, with three men — all in their 20s — down and dying and a fourth victim thrown in the back of a car and rushed by his friends to Auburn General Hospital. That individual suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to Harborview Medical Center, where he is in critical condition.
Hirman said one bullet-riddled car was found in Kent and another in Federal Way. Those vehicles were impounded.
As of Sunday morning, detectives were detaining one individual as a “‘person of interest,” but that no formal arrests had been made. Hirman said Auburn police are looking to talk to anyone who witnessed or has information about the shooting.
