A 32-year-old Tacoma man was killed and six people were injured in a shooting that occurred during an argument around 1 a.m. Saturday at a large gathering in downtown Renton, according to police.
The six injured people were taken to local hospitals with gunshot wounds, according to Renton police.
Police said 911 calls began coming in at 12:56 a.m. to report shots fired in the area of South Second Street and Logan Avenue South, outside a venue that is rented for events.
