EVERETT – Authorities in western Washington say they’re investigating after a bar patron opened fire in the parking lot Saturday morning and injured a man before being shot and killed by a bar employee.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office told the Daily Herald that the Major Crimes Unit is investigating following the shooting that occurred at 2 a.m. in the parking lot of O’Finnigans Pub on Highway 99 in Everett.

Spokeswoman Shari Ireton said bar patrons got into an argument and a 29-year-old man went outside and got a gun from his vehicle.

Ireton said he opened fire and hit a 23-year-old Lynnwood man, who was transported to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Police said a 28-year-old bar employee pulled his weapon and shot and killed the man who initially opened fire.

Names haven’t been released.
