Detectives Investigating Shooting Inside Capitol Hill Club

Gang Unit detectives are investigating following reports of a shooting  inside Chop Suey during a show last night.

At approximately 9:45 pm on Wednesday 911 began receiving calls of shots fired inside the club in the 1300 block of East Madison Street.  Officers arrived and entered the building, searching for potential victims.  The building was secured and no victims were located inside.  It appears that two groups of individuals got into a physical fight inside the club and shots were fired, causing most of the show attendees to flee the club.  There were reports of additional shots outside the club but officers could not find a scene outside.

While investigating, a victim with a non life-threatening gunshot wound to the arm showed up to an urgent care clinic.  Approximately 2 hours after the initial call a second victim showed up at Highline Hospital in Burien with a non life-threatening gunshot wound to his arm.  Both victims are expected to make a  full recovery.

Gang Unit detectives processed the scene and interviewed witnesses and both victims.  This remains an active and on going investigation.
