The opening of Copper Cart got off to a raucous start.
From the Seattle Times
Witnesses told police that the shooting occurred after two men were booted from the club. One man, angry about being kicked out, threatened to “get a gun and shoot up the place,” Witt said. Club security officers followed the men to their car. When the men reached the car, one of them grabbed a gun from the car and club security staff tried to wrestle it from him.
The gun went off during the tussle and a bullet struck one of the security men in the left hand, police said. Other security staffers grabbed the two men and held them for police
I’ve got to hand it to the security guards (no pun intended). It took some bravado to follow the guys to their car to make sure nothing went down. I’m just happy that no one was seriously injured and that it also appears the shooters are in custody. Elise was somehow there with a video camera and captured the shaky arrest. Stay still Elise! 🙂
UPDATE: SPD Blotter releases a summary.
