Police initially thought the shooting stemmed from an argument inside the bar here, but after reviewing surveillance video it appears there was no dispute inside.

Now officials say this could have been an ambush attack from someone outside.

Authorities have no description on the shooter but they are looking for a vehicle the shooter may have fled in.

“It appears to be a silver chevy with a partial take of 611 and it sped off west on Fairmount,” said Police Captain George Fuchs.
