Witnesses told police the incident started with an argument among groups of young people.

Just after the shooting, police say five people were detained at the light rail station outside City Hall. Officers recovered a handgun from one of them.

Investigators say they’re interviewing multiple witnesses at the scene who are cooperating with police. They’re also looking into surveillance footage at the scene.
