(Update)  Two additional gunshot victims arrived at Providence Hospital in Everett having been injured in the University district shooting.

Friends had transported the two victims to Everett, where hospital staff alerted the police. Both victims are being treated at Providence Hospital for life-threatening injuries.

Police are on scene after one man was shot in the leg near a University District club, early Sunday morning.

Officers were called to a parking lot near 8 Ave NE and NE 45th Street with numerous callers reporting shots fired just before 2:30 AM. Medics transported the victim, a man in his 20’s, to Harborview Medical Center with a non-life threatening gunshot injury to his leg.

Witnesses recounted that after a nearby club was emptying, two groups began fighting, leading to gunfire being exchanged in multiple directions.
