CKTB-NEWS-St.Catharines shooting

Police are still looking for two suspects, considered armed and dangerous, following a shooting in downtown St.Catharines.

The shooting took place early Sunday morning in front of the Karma Bar on St.Paul Street near William Street.

Two men got into a fight, and then bullets started flying, injuring six people aged 31-48.

Niagara Regional Police say while they will not release details on the victims, while the suspects remain at large, they will say that they are all expected to survive.

Councillor for downtown ward of St.Patrick's, Mat Siscoe says city officials will be reaching out to bar owners.

He says concerns have been raised in the past about the bar, and they are worried they are creating a place where drugs can be freely exchanged and violence can take place.

Siscoe says it's time we took a good hard look at some downtown establishments.

Police officers were just 100 yards away from the scene of the shooting, as more officers were in the area to deal with the increased crowds from the Grape and Wine Festival held in Montebello Park.
