There are no arrests yet in the after hours club shooting and police are asking for anyone who took pictures or video to turn it in.
The Hmong Festival was being held at the Green Country Event Center, with 300 to 400 in attendence, when a man walked in and began firing a pistol. Two people were shot in the torso and three others were shot in the arms or legs. Police say one person is in critical condition and another is at risk of losing their leg.
Police arrested two men they spotted trying to drive away with their lights off. A .40 calibur, semiautomatic gun was recovered. Police are still trying to find out what the motive was, but they suspect it was some kind of personal grudge.
There were two people shot and killed at an after hours bar near 5500 E. 11th St, including 21-year-old Marrico McGuire. The other victim was not named. One other person was injured in the exchange of gunfire. A fourth injury was sustained, when a 20 year old woman, who had been hiding in the bar, ran out and was struck by a car.
The altercation began inside and carried out into the parking lot, where the three were shot. Retaliatory gunfire came from the north side of E. 11th st. parking lot, which is used for overflow parking for the bar. Bar owners told the police they were being rented out for a birthday party but declined to give the names of the renters. The police described their testimony as inconsistent.
