The male suspect fled the scene and remains at large. No other information was available about the suspect.

Police and medics responded to the scene. The injured pair were treated at the scene and then rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Their conditions were not immediately available, but an Auburn police spokesperson said both are expected to survive.
