Dominoes game turns ugly; two people shot in Auburn

An argument over a game of dominoes might have led to the shooting of two people Sunday evening in Auburn.

A 23-year-old Auburn man is in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with a gunshot wound to his cheek, Auburn police spokesman Sgt. Dave Colglazier said today. He said the injury to the man was not life threatening.

A 48-year-old woman who lives next door to the man was shot in an upper shoulder and taken to Auburn Regional Medical Center. She was in her home when a bullet came through the wall from the duplex next door where the other man was shot, he said.

Colglazier said the injury to the woman was not life threatening.

Police are looking for a 23-year-old Auburn man in connection with the shootings.

Police have arrested another man for rendering criminal assistance after he accompanied the suspect in the shooting back to the duplex in the 1100 block of B Street Southeast following a fight there.

Colglazier said police received a 911 call about the shooting at 7:13 p.m.

When they got to the duplex, police found out friends had left to take the man who had been shot to a hospital.

On their way to the hospital, the friends flagged down a medic unit from Valley Regional Fire Authority for help. Medics treated the man and then took him to Harborview.

Colglazier said the two men apparently were playing dominoes in the duplex when an argument erupted that then turned physical.

After the fight, the suspect left the duplex and returned with a friend. Then shots were fired, he said.

Assault, King County

  8. @jintz: Don’t yo dare forget Federal Way, Kent, Des Moines, Renton, Sea-Tac, Burien!

    @BlainecGarver: I’ll make a guess… black or hispanic shooters, victims probably same race.

    Hey mayor, hey city council are you awake. Do you care? Auburn has turned into a dump. Graffiti everywhere. Gang signs. Illegal aliens fill entire apartment complexes. If you can’t even get rid of illegal aliens who steal are jobs and health care and education just quit and let citizens who do care about Auburn and country fill your job. Point is if those apartments are filled with people who are not even suppose to be here, good citizens of the USA cannot move in.

    Im willing to bet that the shooters were Mexicans or blacks. Also that there are active warrents. Lets see if Im right.
