1 killed, 1 wounded in bar shooting near Seattle


BELLEVUE (AP) — A 30-year-old Seattle man was killed and another man wounded in a shooting at a crowded bar in Bellevue, early Monday, police said.

The shooting broke out just after 1 a.m. at Munchbar at Bellevue Square, an upscale shopping center about 10 miles east of Seattle, said Carla Iafrate, a spokeswoman for the Bellevue Police Department.

Police officers were outside the bar when gunfire erupted because a large crowd had gathered there, she said.

More than 600 people were inside the venue at the time of the shooting. “It was a very complicated scene,” Iafrate said.

The wounded man was taken to a hospital. Iafrate did not immediately know his age or hometown.
