Police release surveillance video in bar shooting

Metro Police have released surveillance video in hopes of catching three suspects in the shooting of a Silver Saddle Saloon employee Monday morning.

At 6:08 a.m. Monday, Metro Police responded to a report a shooting at the bar at 2501 E. Charleston Blvd., near Fremont Street and North Eastern Avenue, Metro spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.

Three Hispanic males who had been asked to leave the building returned with a handgun, shooting the employee multiple times, police said.

The employee was transported to University Medical Center in critical condition.

In the video, a man is seen shooting into the establishment several times at the 6:29:31 mark on the video before fleeing.

The suspects are described as about 24 to 30 years old, police said.

The first suspect, who is seen in the video pulling the trigger, is between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 inches tall, 185 and 200 pounds and has a mustache and heavy build. He was wearing a purple T-shirt with a white design on the front and a Colorado Rockies baseball cap.

The second suspect is between 5 feet 7 and 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 150 to 180 pounds and has a medium build. He was wearing a gray T-shirt with a white design on the front.

The third suspect is described as between 5 feet 2 and 5 feet 6 inches tall, 155 to 180 pounds with a goatee and a medium to heavy build. He was wearing a gray T-shirt, blue denim shorts and sandals.

The men were seen leaving in a blue Ford Ranger pickup truck. The truck has dark tinted windows, a flat protective cover over the bed and alloy/chrome wheels, police said. The front left wheel appears to be different from the others, police said.

Police ask that anyone with information call Metro’s homicide detail at (702) 828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
