Seattle, WA - A 21-year-old man is in jail after a shootout early Monday morning in Pioneer Square.

Seattle police said five people were hit by bullets around 1 a.m. near 2nd Avenue South and South Main.

Detectives said the victims were three men, ages 19, 20 and 24, and two women, ages 22 and 26.

The 26-year-old woman was most seriously hurt.

She was hospitalized after being shot in the face.

Police said a dispute between two men in a parking lot escalated and at least two people started shooting.

Witnesses described a chaotic scene.

"We all ducked down because we didn't know which way they were coming from.  People had ducked behind the cars people were running back inside the building," Boogie Brow told KIRO 7.

One person fleeing the scene drove the wrong way on a one-way street and crashed into two cars, including a police cruiser.

Two of the victims showed up at hospitals on their own after the gunfire.

Police continue working the case.
