CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Chesapeake Police worked a scary situation outside a bar on South Military Highway early Wednesday morning.

Witnesses tell a fight inside V.A. LIVE Entertainment Complex sparked gunfire outside the bar, around 12:45 a.m. According to witnesses, a man got kicked out of the bar after throwing bottles inside. Security eventually closed the bar to everyone.

According to a witness, who did not want to give his name, once everyone was outside the bar, the man pulled out a gun and started firing several shots in the air.

“It was just random,” said the witness. “I just ducked and I just couldn’t believe he was shooting because he got kicked out the club, but it wasn’t like he was shooting at anybody.”

The witness says when the man fired the shots, people immediately started running. Police tell there were minor injuries during the incident, but they occurred when people ran from the gunfire.

Police say they have no suspects in this incident.
