RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Renton police have arrested two men for investigation of felony assault after a shooting outside a bar injured six people.

Cmdr. Paul Cline said six people were shot early Saturday after an argument broke out between two men from Des Moines.

Five people were taken to Harborview Medical Center, including one in critical condition. A sixth person refused medical treatment.
