BRISTOL, Wis. (AP) — Authorities are investigating a report of gunfire outside a controversial Bristol strip club that police believe left at least one person injured.
The Dane County Sheriff’s Office responded to Club Bristol at about 12:20 a.m. Sunday on reports of people exchanging gunfire in the parking lot.
Preliminary reports show there was a large gathering of people outside the bar before shots erupted and many vehicles left the area before law enforcement arrived. Numerous shell casings were found in the lot.
Authorities suspect that at least one person was hurt, but no further details were released.
The club was the site of three shootings in one week in March, which led the bar to voluntarily shut down after the Bristol town board threatened to pull its licenses.
