Police: 5 people shot after "disagreement" at south Baltimore bar

Police: 5 hurt after a man kicked out of a bar in Baltimore's Brooklyn neighborhood returned and opened fire.

Five people were injured after a man kicked out of a bar in Baltimore's Brooklyn neighborhood returned and opened fire "indiscriminately," police said.

At around 1 a.m., police say the man, armed with a gun, stood in the doorway of Maynard's Cafe at 3916 S. Hanover Street where he began shooting.

Police said there had been a "disagreement," and the man was removed from the bar by security. He later returned and "indiscriminately shot into the bar wounding the victims," police said.

Three females, ages 21, 32, and 49, and two males, 30 and 42 were injured in the shooting. They were all transported to area hospitals for treatment, police said.

Police did not give any additional information about what transpired before the shooting.

A manager who answered the phone at the bar Sunday said she wasn't working when the incident happened and the owner wasn't available for comment.

Detectives are reviewing all surveillance video from the bar and surrounding area to identify the suspect, who police described as an African-American male with a slim build who was wearing a dark hoodie, dark skull cap and pants.
