The two victims were male, and the three wounded included "one with life threatening injuries, and two seriously wounded," Seattle Police Department said in its Twitter feeds.
The shooting happened at Cafe Racer, just north of the city's University District. Several local schools have been locked down after the incident, according to local media reports.
The shooting "could be a domestic violence situation," The Seattle Times newspaper quoted a law enforcement source as saying.
The suspect is still at large and was seen running away from the scene with a gun, police said, describing the shooter as a white male between 30 and 40 years of age. VietNamNet/Xinhuanet
