Shooting erupted at an apartment complex in a city south of Seattle and five people died, including a suspect who was shot by arriving officers, police said early Monday.

Officers responding to an emergency call at 9:30 p.m. Sunday at the apartments in Federal Way, found two injured men on the ground in a parking lot.

Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said one of the men reached for a gun as police moved in to assist the two.

At that point, other officers opened fire. The suspect died but police said it wasn't immediately clear if it was from police gunfire.

The other man one the ground and another man in the parking lot were found dead.

In a search of the complex, police found yet another man dead in one apartment and a slain woman in another.

Schrock said police were trying to determine if the woman was accidentally hit by gunfire.

There was no immediate word what set off the shooting.

After police flooded the scene and carried out searches of the area, authorities said they did not think another shooter was on the loose or that there was an immediate threat to the public.
