(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Thursday Denver Police were searching for a female shooter who allegedly injured five bystanders outside Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row restaurant.
Investigators have revealed that the incident occurred late on Saturday night and that the suspect who was waiting outside the bar and restaurant had been stopped by the establishment’s security who had suspected that she was not using her own ID.
In a statement to Fox News Digital the Denver Police Department noted that according to the preliminary information they had gathered the suspect had been denied entry to the bar. She then started to walk away before changing her mind and returning for another conversation with the security staff. She then proceeded to start walking away a second time but proceeded to pull out a firearm and open fire in the direction of the club. Following the shooting five victims were injured. It is currently suspected that the victims were not intended targets.
The police have stated that all five of the injured victims had non-life-threatening injuries and that they were all expected to survive.
Denver Public Safety executive director Armando Saldate noted that so far it appears that the confrontation broke out following a verbal altercation. Following the fight, the woman produced a previously concealed gun and opened fire.
One of the witnesses, Madison Sharnowski, told Denver7 that everything had happened “really fast” and that there were several gunshots heard. She added that in that moment she started running and then remembered to start checking whether she or any of her friends had been hit.
