All victims injured in a shooting in downtown St.Catharines have been released from hospital.

That's the word from Niagara Regional Police as they continue to investigate the shooting which took place  in front of the Karma Lounge on St. Paul Street in the early morning hours of Sunday September 29th.

Police say two men got into a dispute which led to shots fired, injuring six people in their 30's and 40's.

NRP say all victims, four men and two women, are now out of hospital.

Detectives are still looking for the suspects who are described as black men, one was in his 20's and wearing a blue "North Face" jacket with black shoulders, dark pants and dark shoes.

St.Catharines Mayor Walter Sendzik says police need more tools to address gun violence.

He says he is still wondering how the suspects felt comfortable enough to walk the streets with a weapon.

He says the question is how are these people getting guns, and how do we get the guns out of those hands.

He it's a complex issue, and youth engagement may be part of the solution.
