Two 18-year-old men were arrested in Seattle on Friday after authorities say they threatened staff at a local business with a modified handgun over a membership dispute.
The incident happened at around 1:15 p.m. in the 3900 block of Southwest Alaska Street, the Seattle Police Department said.
An employee told police that they had asked the two suspects to leave because they didn't have memberships. They said the situation escalated when one of the men pulled a gun from his jacket pocket and the other verbally threatened to kill an employee.
The suspects fled toward the parking garage, where officers stopped their car as they attempted to leave.
