Victims in Warren shooting defend bar on city's northeast side

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

A Warren bar chose to remain closed Monday after gunfire rang out Friday night. 

The open sign inside the window of University at Larchmont was dark Monday afternoon.

The bar announced on social media, they'd remain closed for the day "due to pro-active safety measures."

It was about 10 o'clock Friday when someone outside the bar started firing shots into the bar.

"I felt like something hit me, it was like a bee sting and then blood ran into my eye and I just hit the floor and then several more shots rang out and it was like chaos," said one of the victims.

The victims weren't seriously injured. Two of the three spoke with 21 News. They didn't want to be identified, but wanted the public to know this bar isn't a nuisance, or trouble-attracting place.

"I've been there 40 years and I've never had trouble there. Never. This is like a random incident," said another victim.

And they're not the only ones hoping the bar get's back up and going. While 21 News was in the area, the co-owner of Club House Brewing pulled into the parking lot in hopes of showing her support to a fellow business owner.

"These people should not get a bad name. I mean they're good people and we just want them to open up again because we're all a brotherhood of bars," said Debbie Dean.

Police haven't yet released any information on a suspect or possible motive, the victims in the case hope that if someone knows something, they say something.

"If anybody in the neighborhood heard or saw anything they need to call the police, because this individual who did that is very dangerous and he needs to be taken and put away from decent people," said a victim.
