SPOKANE, Wash. - Officers are continuing to investigate a fight that led to two shootings and a stabbing near 7th and Perry early Friday morning. Lt. Dave McGovern, a Spokane Major Crimes detective, says two people were shot and one them was also stabbed.

In a brief news conference Friday afternoon McGovern said the incident started at Lefty's Tavern on Division.

Two women at the center of the conflict were reported to have argued inside the bar but no physical confrontation took place. The women left with their respective groups of friends around 2 a.m.

Later in the evening, one of the groups, all five of them women, got a call about an 'after party' near 7th and Perry. When they were near the apartments where the apparent party was, they spotted the woman who one of them had argued with at Lefty's. She was also with a group of friends. That's when police say a fist fight broke out between the two women.

The fight escalated when the woman from the group already near the party apparently pulled a knife and stabbed the other woman. A friend of the woman with the knife then pulled a gun and is suspected to have shot the woman who was stabbed. Both wounds were to her arm.

Following the shooting, the group of women fled the scene, only to realize they had left a friend behind. They went back to pick up their friend when the woman left behind was shot in the chest.

At the end of the fight, police say at least 15 men and women were involved. Police are not sure what sparked the fight, but believe it was something minor.

The two women who were shot were taken to the hospital, along with a third person who was thought to have broken bones after being struck in the face.

The woman who was shot and stabbed has been released from the hospital along with the person who was struck in the face.

The woman shot in the chest remains in the hospital and is listed in critical condition.

Police are searching for three suspects in the case. Timothy Lucious, 38, is suspected to have shot the two women. He is wanted on Attempted Murder Charges.

Michael Gardner, 23, is wanted on assault charges for the striking the person sent to the hospital in the face.

The woman suspected of the stabbing has yet to be identified.
