PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) – Three people were hospitalized after a shooting outside a Piqua bar Friday night.
The Piqua Daily Call reports police were called to Lucky’s Bar around 11:45 p.m when several calls to Miami County 911 reported gunshots.
Arriving officers reported at least two gunshot victims and possibly a third. Three victims were treated on the scene by emergency medics.
One suffered a gunshot wound to the buttocks and one to his ankle. It is unknown where the third victim was hit. All three were taken to Upper Valley Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, according to Piqua Deputy Police Chief Marty Grove.
The shots were all apparently fired in a parking lot just south of Lucky’s Bar.
Police do have a suspect in the case. “We are still gathering leads and information,” said Grove, “The suspect is not in custody, but we are interviewing witnesses and victims.”
Witnesses reported the suspect fled the scene in a dark-colored vehicle following the shooting. That vehicle was later found north of Piqua, according to Grove.
The investigation into the shooting is continuing. Police are asking that anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident, or has any knowledge of what happened, call (937) 615-TIPS.
