A shooting in the parking lot of Playerz Sports Bar in Lawrence left three people, including a suspect, injured early Sunday.
After receiving multiple 911 calls reporting a shooting just after 2 a.m., police rushed to the bar located in a shopping center in the 1900 block of Haskell Avenue.
Arriving officers found two gunshot victims, a male and a female, who had serious injuries, police said. The victims had been shot in the parking lot outside the bar.
Shortly after police arrived at the bar, officers located a suspect vehicle and attempted to stop it. The driver, however, tried to flee from police and led them on a chase that ended near 23rd Street and O’Connell Road.
Police discovered that the male suspect had serious, life-threatening injuries from what was believed to be a gunshot wound. The suspect was rushed to a hospital.
Police on Sunday continued to investigate the shooting and had 23rd Street closed from Harper to East Hills Drive.
