A party in a small town in Washington erupted into gunfire early Saturday morning, leaving three dead and one injured. Witnesses say a man walked into the party in Mukilteo, about 30 miles from Seattle, and began firing at people. The suspected shooter initially fled the scene but was later caught by state troopers in a neighboring county, police said. The identity of the shooter has not yet been released, and the motive is unclear at this time. Police say they’ve set up a meeting point at a nearby church for family and friends of the victims. Witnesses described a scene of chaos, with the grandmother of one of the party guests saying her granddaughter called saying “that she was hiding; that there had been a shooting and that two of her friends were shot and she was shot at,” Susan Gemmer told local media. The mayor of Mukilteo, Jennifer Gregerson, lamented the news early Saturday, saying the Chennault neighborhood had “suffered a great loss.” “Tonight our community has been shaken to the core,” she said. Police from neighboring counties have joined the investigation into the shooting, including the Washington State Patrol. The identities of the three victims have not yet been released.
