    What apparently began as an after-hours party at a local motorcycle club turned into a deadly melee early Sunday, leaving two dead and five others hurt.

    Two people were killed and five others hurt — including two others with gunshot wounds — in an after-hours shooting at a Skyway motorcycle club early Sunday, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office and media reports.

    Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Abbott said two men, ages 24 and 36, were killed in a wild shootout in which the victims were driven from the scene in private cars before deputies arrived to find a parking lot strewn with shell casings. One of the victims, the 24 year old, died in the parking lot of a nearby McDonald’s, where medics tried to save him. Abbott said the driver of the car and another passenger were so traumatized by the incident they had to be hospitalized, as well.

    The other victim, a 36 year old man, was drive by private car to Valley Medical Center, where he died, Abbott said.

    Two other people at the party suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds and a third individual suffered minor injuries when he crashed his car as he sped away from the scene,
    Abbott said.

    The Sheriff’s Office said the shooting occurred in a parking lot shared by the Skyway VFW Club and the Family Motorcycle Club about 4 a.m. in the 12600 block of Renton Avenue South. The initial calls were that there was a large fight, followed shortly thereafter by several 911 reports of gunfire. The Renton Patch reported the parking lot is the frequent site of after-hours parties.


    Just after 4AM today a shooting occurred at 12600 BLK Renton Ave S. 2 victims ages 24 and 36 have died. 2 additional victims at local hospitals with gun shot wounds expected to survive. 3 other victims at hospitals being evaluated for other injuries not shooting related.

    Abbott said the sheriff’s office has responded to the club previously, but did not have details of those interactions. “I heard some deputies talking about it. We’ve been there before,” he said.
