SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities say two people were killed and another wounded in a shooting in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood early Thursday.

Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Kristin Tinsley says a man and a woman died near 5th Avenue and Battery Street. A third man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in serious condition. She says all are in their mid-20s and had gunshot wounds.

Seattle Police said witnesses told detectives that two groups of people were in an altercation shortly before shots were fired at about 12:30 a.m. Suspects ran from the scene.

Police did not immediately provide other details.
