Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich said at the scene that six people were shot, one fatally.
“The shooter is in the backseat of a patrol car right now,” Knezovich said.
Michael Moore, the chief of surgery at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, said eight surgery sites were open for the victims. Hospital security and local law enforcement were directing traffic in the area.
“We’re all hands on deck,” said Dr. Jeff Collins, the hospital’s chief physician. “We train for this regularly.”
