AUBURN, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities say five people are hospitalized with gunshot wounds following a shooting in a casino near Seattle.

The dispatch center for the Auburn police department says the shooting occurred at a nightclub inside the Muckleshoot Casino about 1:30 a.m. PDT Sunday.

The center says the five victims were rushed to area hospitals, including at least two taken by air ambulance.

The alleged shooter was arrested.

The dispatch center says police are still at the scene and it has no other information, including how the shooting occurred or details on the suspect and victims.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg says four of the victims -- three women and a man -- were brought to her Seattle facility, about 30 miles north of Auburn.

She says two are in critical condition and two are serious.
