Just after 11 p.m., on Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014, several people were thrown out of the bar in the 13400 block of 52 Street N.E., following an altercation. As the two groups continued to argue outside, one of the men pulled out a handgun and fired several shots towards the rival group and the bar. One man was shot in the leg, while several others inside the bar were sent diving for cover as bullets entered the business. One patron was injured by flying glass.
