4 shot in Minneapolis nightclub

| No Comments

Four people were shot in a Minneapolis nightclub early Saturday morning, around the bar's closing time, according to reports from the Star Tribune and KSTP.com.

Two women and two men were hit around 2 a.m. at the Red Sea Bar and Restaurant on Cedar Avenue south, according to Minneapolis Police Sgt. Steve McCarthy. The victims' injuries are considered non-life threatening says KSTP, but one woman suffered a possible "grazing wound to the head."

Police arrived around 2 a.m. to see people scattering from the bar. Police said that shots were fired outside the Red Sea when the bar's bouncer was trying to force people to leave the club by using chemical spray.

KSTP reported that the club's bouncers screen every patron entering the bar for weapons and that the music choice for Friday night was hip-hop. The bar owner said the music varies on a nightly basis.

No arrests have been made for this case. KSTP reported that police have been called to the Red Sea 25 times in the past year.
