RENTON, Wash.—One person was confirmed dead and five others were treated for gunshot wounds after multiple shots were fired in Renton, Washington, police said.

The Renton Police Department said on Twitter that officers were called before 1 a.m. Saturday and found multiple victims, five of whom were treated for injuries. Police confirmed one fatality in the shooting.

Police said, “this is not an active shooter situation.”

An initial investigation indicates a dispute outside of a large gathering that led to the gunfire possibly by more than one suspect, police said.

The department said multiple agencies were called in to assist due to the large crowd. The investigation is ongoing.
