Renton Man Held in Auburn Tavern Shooting Deaths

Three people were killed and a fourth critically injured Sunday after a fight at Sports Page Tavern in Auburn turned deadly.

A 28-year-old Renton man is being held by police on $250,000 bail for his alleged role in a deadly shooting in Auburn on Sunday.

According to King 5, a fight broke out inside the Sports Page Tavern early Sunday morning, and spilled into the parking lot. Several shots were reportedly fired, and three people were killed.

The TV station also said friends and family identified Lorenzo Duncan, and two other men, 25-year old Nick Lindsay and 21-year-old Antuan Greer, as targets. The fourth victim was was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition with several gunshot wounds.

The Tacoma News-Tribune identified the man held by police as Troy Neal, and reported that Auburn Police believe two to four people fired guns in the melee. Authorities claim that Neal saw his friend Lindsay and several other men fighting at the bar, and saw his friend get shot by an unknown man.

After his friend was shot, Neal got his own pistol and shot five rounds toward the shooter and surrounding crowd, according to court records. He admitted that he had a .45-caliber handgun, the records state. Neal will appear in court again Wednesday.

Police also say they have collected numerous, conflicting accounts of what happened from witnesses and are still trying to determine exactly how the events of the shooting unfolded. According to the newspaper, the incident stemmed from a dispute between two women at the bar when one of them danced with a man.

Neal was held on suspicion of reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a firearm. No charges have yet been filed.
