Several injured in Seattle-area shooting: reports

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Eight people were injured, some of them seriously, in a mass shooting Saturday afternoon at a car show in suburban Seattle, the Post Intelligencer reported.

Several gunshots were fired after a fight broke out at a low-rider show on Saturday afternoon, the newspaper reported.

Several victims were rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

A nurse at the hospital told Reuters that doctors were treating several gunshot victims. She declined to give her name or further details.

The suspect or suspects fled the scene, according to unconfirmed reports.

Calls to police and emergency responders were not immediately returned on Saturday.
