Editor’s note: The following information was provided by the Renton Police Department.

Officers responded to multiple reports of gunfire and found a chaotic scene and two men injured at a Renton hookah bar early Monday morning, Sept. 4.

Just after midnight, Renton Police officers arrived at Kazi’s Hookah Lounge in the 100 block of Airport Way after callers reported the sounds of at least 30 gunshots. Callers also said suspects were possibly inside the bar with guns.

Officers found a man in his mid 20’s in the lot outside the bar. He had sustained at least three gunshot wounds.

Officers administered aid to the man and worked to secure approximately 75 people inside and outside the bar. The man was later taken to Harborview Medical Center. His condition is unknown.

A short time later, police were notified of a gunshot victim at Valley Medical Center. Investigators confirmed the 19-year-old man was also shot at Kazi’s. His injuries were not life threatening.

Multiple shell casings from several different weapons were recovered at the scene.

The investigation continues. More information will be posted when available.
