Seattle Police arrested a man for shooting someone at a Pioneer Square club early Sunday morning.

Officers were patrolling near a nightclub near Occidental Avenue and Yesler Way when they heard gunshots coming from inside the building. People started flocking through the front door to escape the shooting, but several reported the gunman to police.

A man was quickly taken into custody and officers provided first aid to the victim, who had a single gunshot wound. Doctors from the Seattle Fire Department arrived and transported the man to Harborview Medical Center, where he was listed as having non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses told police the suspect and victim were having an argument that escalated into the shooting.
