COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A wild night at a Colorado Springs bar ended with five people in the hospital.

Police say customers were lingering outside the Latin Quarters after close early Sunday when several began firing off guns. Bystanders were hit by bullet fragments, shrapnel, and in at least one case, a round itself. None of the injuries were life-threatening.

It’s unclear why people were shooting, but there’s no indication anyone was fighting.

A spokesperson with the Colorado Springs Police Department said “multiple rounds were fired by multiple people” but couldn’t confirm an exact number for either.

Witnesses and victims were unable to give police information on the suspects.
