This happened at Ramonero's Liquor & Bar (formerly J & J Liquor & Bar and the Stokes Bar) to Melli-Huber.
It's the second shootout in the city in nearly a year, in which 9 or more people were injured. In June 2018, nearly 30 people were wounded or injured in the Art All Night Festival, and one man, a suspected gunman, was fatally shot by engaging police officers.
