Bar owner shoots at fleeing suspects

Police are looking for two suspects linked to a clash Thursday night that prompted a bar owner o fire several shots at the men as they fled.

The owner of Stix Bar, 2785 S. Meridian, asked two men to leave the bar shortly before 10 p.m., police said. One of the men reportedly told the owner, "I can do what I want, because I have a gun and you don't."

The suspects went outside and were still in the parking lot when the bar owner stepped outside. He ordered them to leave again, and they got into a red two-door Saturn.

They drove toward the bar owner and struck him with their car, then struck him again as they fled the lot, police said.

The 43-year-old bar owner fired several shots at the car, police said, and three bullets hit an unoccupied house in the 2400 block of West Greenfield. Police don't know if the Saturn was hit.

Police are looking for a 22-year-old man known by name, and an unknown 18-year-old man. He is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 150 pounds, with dark hair.

The bar owner suffered only minor injuries in the incident and was treated at the scene.
