According to Snohomish County Sheriff's Office (SCSO), at around 5:30 a.m., deputies responded to reports of a shooting at Denny's on 128th street near I-5. Authorities say before shots were fired, an altercation happened after a group of people were asked to leave the restaurant. 

SCSO says when deputies arrived at the scene, an employee was suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was then taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, and the suspect who fired the gun was taken into custody. 

Details are limited at this time.
