Three men were injured by gunfire near a South Omaha bar early Friday.
The gunfire erupted just before 2 a.m. on 31st Street between L and K Streets -- outside the Tquila Night Club, also known as La Carreta.
Seventeen evidence markers identifying gun casings dotted the street after the shooting. By 8 a.m., only a scrap of crime scene tape was left of the violence.
Anthony Dunn, 22, was taken in critical condition to Creighton University Medical Center. He was shot once in each leg.
Paul Simms Jr., 21, and Rico Larry, 27, were taken to a hospital in serious condition, police said.
Omaha police said none of the victims' injuries were believed to be life threatening.
Emergency dispatch reports stated there was a fourth victim who left the scene in a private vehicle. Omaha police said they were not aware of a fourth shooting victim.
An off-duty officer was working security at the Tquila club, which is across the street from a row of houses. That officer, along with others on duty in the area, heard multiple shots.
Police said it was not clear whether the shooter or shooters fired from a vehicle or while on foot. But police said the shooting suspects fled in a vehicle, possibly a dark colored jeep. No arrests had been made by late Friday morning.
Accounts from the victims and witnesses were muddled because many of them were intoxicated, police said. Thursday is listed as “ladies night” on Tquila Night Club's website.
The shootings occurred a block from the scene of a Sept. 2, 2011, homicide in which police said a man in a vehicle was shot near 32nd and J Streets.
