BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Police are searching for the person who shot two people, killing one, at the Munchbar in Bellevue just after 1 a.m. Monday morning.

Bellevue Police Department spokeswoman Carla Iafrate said the deceased is a 30-year-old Seattle man. The injured victim is described only as a "younger man."

Early reports indicate that there were several altercations that led up to the shooting, but Iafrate called it an "isolated incident."

There were over 600 people inside the bar at the time of the shooting. Iafrate said officers are interviewing multiple witnesses.

Witnesses tell KING 5 News that there were several Seahawks players in the bar at the time of the shooting. Witnesses said the players were in a VIP lounge and were escorted to safety after the shooting.

Reality TV star Aubrey O’Day claimed she was with the players. Early Monday morning, she tweeted, "Seriously ppl just got shot n front of me. We hit the ground, never been in a situation like this. For real. Seattle, what's going on?!"

Police continue investigating at Munchbar, but say there is no expected impact to the Bellevue Square shopping Center.
