ST. PAUL, Minn. - Four people are recovering after someone opened fire outside a St. Paul bar at closing time Wednesday.
St. Paul Police spokesman Steve Linders says squads were dispatched to Born's Bar on the 800 block of Rice Street just after 2 a.m. on a report of shots fired, with people struck. When they arrived officers found three victims, a woman and a man who had been shot in the leg, and another male who was hit in the hand by a bullet. All three were transported to Regions Hospital by ambulance. While at Regions another male victim showed up with a gunshot wound to his leg.
None of the injuries is believed to be life-threatening.
Investigators originally believed that the shooter was outside Born's Bar and fired shots inside, but later said the victims were outside when the shooting occurred.
The gunman fled after shooting the victims and at this point police have not made any arrests.
Anyone who knows anything about the shooting or the person responsible is asked to call St. Paul Police.
