SEATTLE – Police said two people were injured in a shooting at a nightclub in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Seattle police said two groups of people began firing at each other after a fight at about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday at the club called Chop Suey.

Police said people attending a show fled when gunshots were fired.

Police found no victims at the club, but said one victim went to an urgent-care clinic with a gunshot wound to the arm.

A couple hours later, police said another victim with a wound to the arm was taken to a hospital south of the city in Burien.

Police said both people are expected to recover.

No suspects have been arrested. The Police Department’s Gang Unit is investigating.
