FOX 2 reported:
Six people were shot during an attempted robbery overnight at a bar in south city. The bar is a well known hangout for police officers. One woman was shot in the head. Two suspects were injured as well.
The shooting occured late Tuesday night at Pooh’s Corner located in the 6000 block of Virginia Avenue. Around 11p.m., three suspects walked into the bar and told everyone to get on the floor. At least one suspect had a gun. According to police, that suspect put the gun up to the head of the female customer and shot her. At that point, a city police officer, who was a patron at the time, pulled out his gun and shot the suspect.
Moments later, a shoot out began.
The three other customers who were shot, including the off-duty officer, have non-life threatening injuries. Police also say one suspect was shot in the eye.
The other two suspects fled the scene in a blue Dodge Magnum.
One of those suspects showed up at a local hospital with gunshot wounds. After claiming he had been shot at a different location, he admitted to being involved in the shooting at the bar.
