Police: 7 wounded in casino shooting near Seattle

A hospital spokeswoman says conditions have been upgraded for four people shot at a casino near Seattle.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said Sunday that three women and a 29-year-old man were taken to the Seattle facility early Sunday. Two are now in serious condition and two are in satisfactory condition.

Police in Auburn say a man went to the Muckleshoot Casino looking for a woman, found her on a dance floor with another man, shot them both and continued firing, wounding five others before being tackled by a security guard. The shooting happened at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Three victims taken to Valley Medical Center in Renton suffered minor injuries and could be released Sunday.
