Twenty people were wounded in two separate shootings in south King County over the weekend at a car show and casino.
Auburn police booked Cesar Arturo Chaparro, 42, into King County Jail on suspicion of four counts of attempted murder in the Muckleshoot Casino attack early Sunday. The seven people injured included his estranged wife, her dance partner and her sister.
In Kent, police are attempting to locate the shooter or shooters who opened fire Saturday afternoon in the parking lot of La Plaza shopping center, near the intersection of Pacific Highway South and the South Kent-Des Moines Road.
As many as 300 people were attending a car show, which included lowriders and other classic vehicles.
Witnesses reported that several young people were "mugging," or staring each other down. Some attending the show said the presence of "gangster rappers" from Southern California may have aggravated the situation.
