A man was shot in the arm following a large disturbance that began inside a club and then spilled outside early this morning in the SODO neighborhood.
Gang Unit detectives were actually monitoring the closing of the club in the 2900 Block of 1 Avenue South around 2 this morning when a large disturbance erupted inside the club following a rap concert. The disturbance spilled outside onto 1st Avenue South, and witnesses and detectives heard shots fired from three different locations. Detectives located a man who had been shot in the arm among the crowd at Occidental Avenue South and South Forest Street.

The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of his non life-threatening injury. The victim also declined to cooperate with detectives.
Fortunately, no one else was injured in this incident. The suspect(s) were not located. Detectives will continue to investigate.
